A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the correct login credentials are provided. This may be an entire site or only a single page which is situated in a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up where you have to type in a username as well as a password. If you type in the right ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content without the need to do anything additional. In case the login credentials are not accurate, however, you will see a message that you aren't permitted to look at the content. When 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 prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Hosting

Setting up a password-protected area shall take merely a couple of mouse clicks and a few seconds when you host your websites within a hosting account with our company. You'll not need to do anything difficult - you'll have to pick a domain/subdomain, to choose which folder under it has to be secured, and then to enter the login name and password that will be used to access that folder. In case a number of people need their own login credentials, there won't be a problem to create a variety of different usernames with access to the very same folder. All protected folders shall appear with a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you shall always know where this option is active. If you wish to deactivate the protection feature for any folder, you can disable it from the same exact section of the CP in which you have enabled it.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall be able to secure any content that you have uploaded using our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's part of, so you'll not have to write any code at any time. You will only have to choose one of the domains/subdomains that you have in the website 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'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be all set. The protection shall be turned on instantly, so anyone that tries to access the recently protected folder will have to enter the correct login details. When a number of individuals must be able to access precisely the same content, you could make a separate username for each one.
