A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the proper login details are supplied. This can be an entire Internet site or only one page that's in a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you will see a browser pop-up where you must type in a username and a password. In case you input the appropriate ones, you can continue surfing around the content without having to do anything additional. In case the login details are not right, however, you'll see a message that you aren't authorized to view the content. When this option is activated, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is very useful if you want to limit the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting

With the password protection tool provided with every shared hosting package deal which we provide, you will be able to shield any content that you have within your account with only a few clicks. Since the tool is a component of our innovative Hepsia CP, it features exactly the same simple interface and you shall not need any special skills to use it. When you navigate to the Password Protection section, you will need to choose one of the domains or subdomains that you have within the account and then choose if the protection should be active for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type in the username and the password that you would like and you shall be ready. A little padlock symbol in the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the very same way you'll be able to include multiple usernames and passwords for the same folder if you'd like several people to have their own login credentials.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to protect any content that you have uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is part of, so you shall not need to type in any code at any time. You'll simply need to choose one of the domains/subdomains you have inside the hosting account and to determine which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can type in the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be all set. The protection will be switched on immediately, so anybody who attempts to access the freshly protected folder will have to input the right login details. In case various individuals have to be able to access the same content, you could set up a separate username for each of them.
