A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the right login credentials are provided. This could be an entire Internet site or just a single page that is located in a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up in which you have to type in a username and a password. If you input the correct ones, you can continue surfing around the content without the need to do anything more. If the login credentials aren't correct, however, you shall see information that you are not authorized to see the content. When this feature is active, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The feature is quite effective if you'd like to limit the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Website Hosting

With the password protection tool that is included with every cloud website hosting package that we provide, you'll be able to secure any content which you have in your account with just a few clicks. Since the tool is a component of our ground breaking Hepsia Control Panel, it has the same uncomplicated interface and you shall not need any special skills to use it. When you go to the Password Protection section, you will need to select one of the domains or subdomains you have within the account and then choose whether the protection should be activated for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then enter the username and the password that you want and you will be set. A little padlock symbol in the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the same way you'll be able to include numerous usernames and passwords for the same folder if you want several people to have their own login credentials.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to protect any content which you have uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is a part of, so you shall not have to type in any code at any time. You will simply have to select one of the domains/subdomains 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. After that you can type in the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be good to go. The protection will be activated right away, so anybody who attempts to access the recently secured folder will have to input the correct login info. In cases where a number of individuals must be able to open precisely the same content, you could set up a separate username for each one.
