A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the right login credentials are provided. This could be a whole site or just one page which is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up where you have to enter a username and a password. If you type in the appropriate ones, you can continue exploring the content without the need to do anything more. If the login details are not right, however, you will see information that you are not authorized to see the content. In case this option is active, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is quite useful if you'd like to restrict the access to some content or if you work on a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Website Hosting

Creating a password-protected area shall take just a few mouse clicks and a few seconds when you host your websites inside a shared website hosting account with our company. You shall not need to do anything complex - you'll have to pick a domain/subdomain, to pick which folder under it should be protected, and then to input the login name and password which will be used to access that folder. When a number of individuals require their own login details, there will not be a problem to set up a variety of different usernames with access to the exact same folder. All secured folders will appear with a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you'll always know where this function is activated. If you want to disable the security feature for any folder, you can deactivate it from the exact same section of the CP where you have enabled it.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to shield any content that 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 will not need to write any code at any time. You'll simply need to select one of the domains/subdomains which 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 may then enter the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be good to go. The protection will be switched on right away, so anyone that attempts to access the recently protected folder shall have to type in the correct login details. When various people must be able to access exactly the same content, you could make a separate username for each of them.
