A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the right login details are provided. This can be a whole site or just one page that is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you shall see a browser pop-up where you must enter a username and a password. If you enter the appropriate ones, you can continue exploring the content without the need to do anything else. When the login details are not right, however, you shall see a note that you are not authorized to view the content. When this option is active, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is quite practical if you'd like to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

All of our cloud plans include an exceptionally handy tool that will allow you to shield any folder within your account from unauthorized access with just 2 clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia website hosting CP, you will only have to navigate to the Password Protection section, to select the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that has to be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type in the username and the password which should be used in order to access the content in question. The feature shall be active straightaway, so if you try to open the folder/website, you'll be prompted to type in the login info. You may set up or remove many usernames for the same folder, if required. If you go to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be shown with a small padlock icon.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to protect any content which you have uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is a part of, so you will not need to type in any code at any time. You'll only have to pick one of the domains/subdomains you have in the website hosting account and to pick which folder should be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then input the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be all set. The protection shall be enabled immediately, so anybody who tries to access the recently protected folder shall have to input the accurate login info. In case a number of people should be able to access the exact same content, you can create a separate username for each of them.
