A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the correct login credentials are provided. This could be a whole Internet site or simply one page which is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you shall see a browser pop-up where you will need to input a username and a password. In case you input the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content without having to do anything else. In case the login details are not right, however, you shall see information that you aren't permitted to view 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 want to prohibit the access to some content or if you are creating a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.

Password Protected Directories in Web Hosting

Creating a password-protected area shall take merely a few clicks and a few seconds when you host your sites in a web hosting account with us. You shall not have to do anything challenging - you will have to pick a domain/subdomain, to choose which folder under it should be protected, and then to input the login name and password that'll be used to access that folder. In case a number of individuals need their own login details, there shall not be a problem to set up numerous different usernames with access to the same folder. All secured folders shall appear with a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you will always know where this function is active. If you want to disable the security 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 will be able to secure any content which you have uploaded using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's part of, so you'll not need to input any code at any time. You will only need to choose one of the domains/subdomains which you have in the website hosting account and to choose which folder has to 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 all set. The protection shall be activated instantly, so anybody who attempts to access the freshly protected folder will have to type in the correct login info. If a number of individuals should be able to access the exact same content, you can create a separate username for each.
