A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the proper login details are offered. This may be an entire site or just a single page that's in a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you shall see a browser pop-up in which you will need to type in a username and a password. If you type the right ones, you can continue exploring the content without having to do anything extra. If the login credentials aren't accurate, however, you shall see a note that you aren't permitted to view the content. If this option is active, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The feature is quite useful if you wish to limit the access to some content or if you are developing an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Web Hosting

Setting up a password-protected area will take merely several clicks and a few seconds if you host your Internet sites within a shared web hosting account with us. You won't have to do anything complex - you'll need to pick a domain/subdomain, to pick which folder under it has to be protected, and then to type the login name and password that will be used to access that folder. If a number of individuals require their own login credentials, there won't be a problem to set up numerous different usernames with access to the exact same folder. All protected folders shall appear with a padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you shall always know where this option is enabled. If you would like to deactivate the protection feature for any folder, you can disable it from the very same section of the Control Panel where you have enabled it.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to shield any content you have uploaded via our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's a part of, so you'll not have to enter any code at any time. You'll only have to pick one of the domains/subdomains you have inside the web hosting account and to determine which folder should be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You can then input the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be good to go. The protection shall be switched on at once, so anyone who tries to access the freshly secured folder will have to enter the correct login info. If various individuals should be able to open the same content, you can create a separate username for each one.
