A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the right login details are supplied. This can be a whole website or simply a single page that's in a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you'll see a web browser pop-up in which you have to type a username and also a password. If you input the correct ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without having to do anything extra. When the login credentials aren't correct, however, you'll see a message that you are not allowed to view the content. In case this option is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is very handy if you wish to restrict the access to some content or if you work on an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Website Hosting

If you use any of our cloud website hosting plans, you'll be able to make password-protected areas without difficulty even if you don't have any experience with such matters. We've incorporated an incredibly easy-to-use point-and-click tool into the Hepsia CP, supplied with all accounts, so you'll be able to secure any folder within just a few seconds. You will simply have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder that should be protected (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to input the desired username and password which will be used to access the folder in question in the future. Every protected folder will have a padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see immediately what content is protected and what is not. If required, you could make a number of sets of login credentials for exactly the same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to shield any content you have uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's a part of, so you'll not need to write any code at any time. You will only have to choose one of the domains/subdomains that you have inside the hosting account and to choose which folder must be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You can then type in the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be ready. The protection will be activated straightaway, so anyone who tries to access the recently secured folder will have to input the correct login info. If a number of individuals should be able to access the exact same content, you could make a separate username for each one.
