A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are offered. This can be a whole site or simply a single page which is located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up where you must enter a username and also a password. In case you type the correct ones, you'll be able to continue exploring the content without the need to do anything additional. If the login details aren't accurate, however, you shall see a message that you are not allowed to view the content. If this function is active, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is very effective if you need to restrict the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.

Password Protected Directories in Hosting

Creating a password-protected area will take no more than several mouse clicks and a few seconds if you host your Internet sites within a hosting account with our company. You shall not need to do anything complicated - you'll need to select a domain/subdomain, to pick which folder under it must be secured, and then to type the login name and password that'll be used to access that folder. If a number of people require their own login credentials, there shall not be a problem to create numerous different usernames with access to the very same folder. All secured folders will appear with a padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you shall always know where this option is active. If you wish to disable the security function for any folder, you can deactivate it from the same exact 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 shall be able to protect any content you have uploaded using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is part of, so you'll not need to enter any code at any time. You will simply have to pick one of the domains/subdomains that you have inside the website hosting account and to choose which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You can then input the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be good to go. The protection shall be activated instantly, so anyone who tries to access the recently secured folder shall have to type in the correct login details. In cases where a number of individuals have to be able to access the same content, you could make a separate username for each of them.
