A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the right login credentials are supplied. This could be a whole site or simply one page that is located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you will see a browser pop-up where you must type a username and also a password. In case you type in the appropriate ones, you can continue exploring the content without having to do anything more. In case the login credentials aren't right, however, you will see a message that you aren't allowed to view the content. If this function is active, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The feature is incredibly effective if you need to limit the access to some content or if you are developing a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.

Password Protected Directories in Web Hosting

All of our web hosting plans come with an exceptionally convenient tool which will enable you to protect any folder within your account from unauthorized access with just 2 clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will just have to visit the Password Protection section, to choose the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that should be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type in the username and the password that have to be used in order to access the content in question. The feature shall be activated immediately, so in case you make an effort to open the folder/website, you will be prompted to enter the login info. You can create or remove multiple usernames for the very same folder, if required. If you check out the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be marked with a little padlock icon.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

Securing any folder with a password shall be very simple if you host your sites within a semi-dedicated server account with our company. A user-friendly tool, that is incorporated into the Hepsia CP, will permit you to select the specific folder you would like to secure with a few mouse clicks and all you'll have to input shall be the username and the password which will be used to access it afterwards. You won't experience any problems even if you have never had a web hosting account before, due to the fact that you do not need any previous knowledge or computer programming skills to enable the feature. If you repeat the same basic steps, you'll be able to set up many usernames for the same password-protected area, so many people will be able to access a given folder with their own login credentials. You shall be able to see the secured folders conveniently either in precisely the same section of the Control Panel or inside the File Manager section where you shall recognize them by their little padlock icons.
