A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the correct login credentials are offered. This can be a whole Internet site or simply a single page which is situated in a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up where you must input a username and also a password. In case you enter the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content without having to do anything more. In case the login details are not accurate, however, you will see information that you are not authorized to view the content. When this feature is active, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The feature is incredibly effective if you wish 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's ready.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting

All of our shared hosting plans include an exceptionally useful tool that will allow you to shield any folder inside your account from unauthorized access with just 2 clicks. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia web hosting CP, you will only have to go 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 should be used so as to access the content in question. The function shall be activated right away, so in case you make an effort to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to type in the login credentials. You could set up or remove multiple usernames for the same folder, if needed. If you navigate to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be indicated by a compact padlock icon.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to set up password protection for any content you have inside your semi-dedicated server account. We have integrated an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel using which you shall be able to activate the function with a few clicks and without any troubles, even if you are not quite tech-savvy. You'll only need to pick the hostname (domain or subdomain), the particular folder which needs to be protected (the main folder or a subfolder) as well as the login name and password. The protection will take effect instantly, so if you attempt to open the password-protected URL inside your Internet browser, you will need to type the newly created login details before you can proceed. You will also be able to give different usernames for the exact same folder to a number of people, so you'll not need to share the same login credentials with anybody. Each password-protected folder will have a compact padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you shall be able to recognize this type of folders easily.
