A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the proper login details are provided. This could be a whole Internet site or only a single page that is in a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up in which you must enter a username and a password. If you enter the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue exploring the content with no need to do anything more. If the login details aren't right, however, you will see a note that you aren't authorized to see the content. In case this option is activated, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is very useful if you want to limit the access to some content or if you are creating a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Hosting

All our Linux hosting packages come with an exceptionally useful tool that will enable you to shield any folder in your account from unauthorized access with just 2 clicks. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia web hosting CP, you will simply have to navigate to the Password Protection section, to select the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which has to be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type in the username and the password that have to be used so as to access the content in question. The function shall be activated instantly, so if you attempt to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to input the login details. You may create or remove multiple usernames for the same folder, if needed. When you check out the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be marked with a tiny padlock icon.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to set up password protection for any content that you have inside your semi-dedicated server account. We've added an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel using which you shall be able to switch on the feature with several mouse clicks and without any problems, even if you are not quite tech-savvy. You will only need to pick the hostname (domain or subdomain), the specific folder that needs to be secured (the main folder or a subfolder) plus the login name and password. The protection shall take effect immediately, so if you make an attempt to open the password-protected URL in your web browser, you'll have to enter the newly created login details before you proceed. You'll also be able to give different usernames for the very same folder to a number of people, so you'll not have to share the same login credentials with anyone. Any password-protected folder shall have a little padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you shall be able to recognize such folders effortlessly.
