A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the right login details are offered. This could be a whole Internet site or simply one page that's situated in a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you shall see a browser pop-up where you must type a username and a password. If you type in the appropriate ones, you can continue browsing the content without having to do anything more. If the login details aren't correct, however, you will see a note that you are not permitted to look at the content. If this function is activated, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is extremely handy if you need to limit the access to some content or if you are developing a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.

Password Protected Directories in Web Hosting

All our Linux web hosting services come with a really handy tool that will enable you to protect any folder within your account from unauthorized access with simply two mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll simply have to navigate to the Password Protection section, to select the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which needs to be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to input the username and the password that have to be used in order to access the content in question. The feature shall be turned on at once, so in case you make an effort to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to enter the login details. You can set up or remove a number of usernames for the very same folder, if necessary. When you go to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be shown with a tiny padlock icon.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to protect any content that you have uploaded using our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is a part of, so you'll not have to input any code at any time. You'll simply need to choose one of the domains/subdomains which you have inside the web hosting account and to choose which folder needs to 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 shall be switched on right away, so anyone that tries to access the recently secured folder shall have to enter the right login information. In cases where a number of individuals have to be able to access the same content, you can create a separate username for each of them.
