A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are provided. This may be an entire site or only a single page that's situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you shall see a browser pop-up in which you will need to type a username and a password. In case you type in the correct ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without the need to do anything extra. If the login credentials are not right, however, you will see a message that you are not authorized to see the content. When this feature is active, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The option is very effective if you'd like to limit the access to some content or if you are creating a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Website Hosting

All our website hosting plans feature a really useful tool that will permit you to shield any folder inside your account from unauthorized access with just 2 mouse clicks. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia hosting CP, you'll only have to navigate to the Password Protection section, to pick the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which needs to be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type the username and the password that have to be used in order to access the content in question. The function will be activated immediately, so if you try to open the folder/website, you will be prompted to input the login info. You may create or remove multiple usernames for the exact same folder, if required. If you go to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be shown with a little padlock icon.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to set up password protection for any content you have inside your semi-dedicated server account. We have integrated an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel using which you shall be able to enable the feature with a number of mouse clicks and with no complications, even if you are not really tech-savvy. You'll simply have to select the hostname (domain or subdomain), the specific folder that must be protected (the primary folder or a subfolder) plus the login name and password. The protection shall take effect immediately, so if you make an effort to open the password-protected URL inside your Internet browser, you will have to input the newly created login details in order to proceed. You'll also be able to give different usernames for the exact same folder to a number of individuals, so you'll not need to share the same login details with everyone. Any password-protected folder will have a compact padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you shall be able to recognize this type of folders easily.
