A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the right login details are provided. This can be an entire Internet site or just a single page which is located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up in which you have to type a username and a password. If you type the right ones, you'll be able to continue exploring the content without needing to do anything additional. When the login details aren't right, however, you shall see a message that you are not permitted to see the content. When this feature is activated, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is incredibly effective if you wish to prohibit the access to some content or if you are creating a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.

Password Protected Directories in Hosting

All our Linux hosting services feature an incredibly useful tool which will enable you to shield any folder in your account from unauthorized access with simply 2 mouse clicks. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia hosting CP, you will just have to visit the Password Protection section, to choose the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which has to be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to enter the username and the password which should be used to access the content in question. The function will be turned on instantly, so in case you attempt to open the folder/website, you will be prompted to enter the login credentials. You could create or remove a number of usernames for the very same folder, when necessary. When you check out the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be shown with a tiny padlock icon.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to secure any content you have uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's a part of, so you shall not have to write any code at any time. You will simply have to pick one of the domains/subdomains that you have inside the web hosting account and to select which folder should be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then enter the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be good to go. The protection shall be activated right away, so anyone that attempts to access the freshly secured folder will have to type in the right login information. In cases where a number of individuals must be able to open the same content, you can create a separate username for each one.
