A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the proper login details are offered. This may be a whole Internet site or just a single page that's located in a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up where you must enter a username as well as a password. In case you input the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue exploring the content without the need to do anything more. If the login details aren't correct, however, you shall see a message that you are not allowed to look at the content. In case this function is active, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is extremely handy if you wish to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

With the password protection tool that comes with each cloud hosting plan which we provide, you'll be able to secure any content that you have within your account with only a few mouse clicks. Because the tool is an element of our revolutionary Hepsia Control Panel, it features the exact same uncomplicated interface and you'll not need any special skills to use it. Once you visit the Password Protection section, you will have to select one of the domains or subdomains which you have in the account and then decide if the protection should be switched on for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password that you want and you will be ready. A small padlock symbol inside the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the very same way you'll be able to include a number of usernames and passwords for the same folder if you would like 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 secure any content which you have uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is part of, so you shall not have to type in any code at any time. You will only have to select one of the domains/subdomains which you have in the web hosting account and to choose which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You can then enter the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be ready. The protection will be activated immediately, so anyone that tries to access the recently secured folder shall have to input the right login information. If a number of people must be able to open precisely the same content, you can create a separate username for each of them.
