A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the correct login details are provided. This could be an entire website or simply a single page which is located in a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you will see a browser pop-up in which you will have to type a username and a password. If you enter the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue surfing around the content with no need to do anything more. In case the login credentials aren't right, however, you will see information that you are not permitted to view the content. If this feature is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is quite useful if you wish to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

All our cloud hosting service feature an exceptionally handy tool that will permit you to secure any folder in your account from unauthorized access with just 2 clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia website hosting CP, you'll just have to navigate to 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 type the username and the password which must be used so as to access the content in question. The feature shall be activated right away, so if you try to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to input the login info. You can create or remove multiple usernames for the same folder, if necessary. If you go to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be marked with a compact padlock icon.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll 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 Control Panel it is a part of, so you'll not need to write any code at any time. You will only have to select one of the domains/subdomains that you have in the website hosting account and to select which folder should be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You can then type the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be good to go. The protection shall be turned on at once, so anybody who tries to access the freshly protected folder shall have to type in the right login details. When several individuals must be able to access exactly the same content, you could set up a separate username for each of them.
