A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the correct login credentials are supplied. This could be an entire Internet site or only one page that's located within a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up where you must input a username and also a password. If you input the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content with no need to do anything more. If the login credentials aren't accurate, however, you will see a note that you are not authorized to view the content. When this feature is active, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The option is incredibly practical if you wish to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting

With the password protection tool supplied with each shared hosting package that we provide, you'll be able to protect any content which you have within your account with only a few mouse clicks. Because the tool is a component of our innovative Hepsia CP, it features the exact same simple interface and you shall not require any special skills to use it. Once you go to the Password Protection section, you will have to select one of the domains or subdomains you have within the account and then decide if the protection should be turned on for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then enter the username and the password that you'd like and you'll be set. A little padlock symbol within the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the exact same way you'll be able to add a number of usernames and passwords for the same folder if you want several people to have their own login credentials.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall be able to shield any content that you have uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it is a part of, so you shall not need to write any code at any time. You will simply need to choose one of the domains/subdomains that you have inside the hosting account and to pick which folder must be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can type in the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be ready. The protection will be switched on at once, so anybody who tries to access the recently protected folder will have to input the correct login details. In case a number of people must be able to open exactly the same content, you could set up a separate username for each one.
