A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the correct login credentials are offered. This can be an entire site or simply a single page which is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you will see a browser pop-up where you have to enter a username and also a password. In case you type in the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content with no need to do anything extra. When the login credentials are not accurate, however, you'll see a note that you are not allowed to view the content. When this function is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is very handy if you'd like to restrict the access to some content or if you are developing an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting

When you use any of our shared hosting packages, you shall be able to make password-protected areas without difficulty even if you have no experience with this kind of matters. We have built in an extremely easy-to-use point-and-click tool within the Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with all accounts, so you shall be able to shield any folder within a matter of seconds. You will have to select a domain or a subdomain and the exact folder which must be secured (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to type in the username and password that'll be used to access the folder in question at some point. Any protected folder shall have padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you will be able to see immediately what content is secured and what's not. If necessary, you can create a number of sets of login credentials for exactly the same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

Protecting any folder with a password will be easy if you host your websites within a semi-dedicated server account with us. A user-friendly tool, that's integrated into the Hepsia CP, will enable you to choose the exact folder that you want to secure with a couple of mouse clicks and all you'll need to type in will be the username and the password which will be used to access it later on. You won't encounter any problems even if you have not had a web hosting account before, due to the fact that you don't need any previous knowledge or coding skills to switch on the function. If you repeat the same basic steps, you shall be able to create many usernames for the very same password-protected area, so a number of people will be able to access a particular folder with their own login details. You'll be able to see the protected folders easily either in the very same section of the CP or within the File Manager section where you'll detect them by their small padlock icons.
