A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the right login credentials are supplied. This may be an entire Internet site or only one page that is in a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you'll see a web browser pop-up where you will need to enter a username as well as a password. In case you input the appropriate ones, you can continue exploring the content with no need to do anything additional. When the login details aren't correct, however, you will see a message that you are not authorized to view the content. If this function is activated, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is incredibly practical if you want to limit the access to some content or if you are creating an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Web Hosting

If you use any of our cloud web hosting plans, you shall be able to set up password-protected areas with ease even if you have no experience with such matters. We have incorporated a very easy-to-use point-and-click tool into the Hepsia CP, supplied with all accounts, so you shall be able to shield any folder within just seconds. You'll simply have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder which should be secured (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to type the username and password that'll be used to access the folder in question in the future. Every secured folder will have a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you shall be able to see at a glance what content is secured and what's not. If necessary, you may create several different sets of login details for exactly the same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

Protecting any folder with a password shall be very simple if you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account with us. A user-friendly tool, that is incorporated into the Hepsia CP, will enable you to choose the exact folder that you want to secure with a few clicks and all you will need to input shall be the username and the password which will be used to access it later on. You will not experience any issues even if you have never had a website hosting account before, because you don't need any previous knowledge or coding skills to enable the function. If you repeat the same simple steps, you'll be able to create various usernames for the exact same password-protected area, so a number of people will be able to access a particular folder with their own login details. You'll be able to see the secured folders very easily either in the very same section of the Control Panel or in the File Manager section where you will identify them by their small padlock icons.
