A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the right login credentials are offered. This can be a whole Internet site or just a single page that's in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up in which you must input a username as well as a password. In case you type the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without needing to do anything additional. If the login details aren't correct, however, you will see a note that you aren't allowed to view the content. In case this option is active, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is very handy if you need to restrict the access to some content or if you are creating an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

All of our Linux cloud packages include a very handy tool that'll enable you to shield any folder inside your account from unauthorized access with just 2 clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia web hosting CP, you'll just have to navigate to the Password Protection section, to choose the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which should be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to enter the username and the password that must be used so as to access the content in question. The function will be active straightaway, so in case you make an effort to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to input the login info. You can set up or remove numerous usernames for the very same folder, if needed. When you go to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be indicated by a little padlock icon.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to protect any content you have uploaded via our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it's a part of, so you will not need to type in any code at any time. You'll simply have to select one of the domains/subdomains that you have in the web hosting account and to determine which folder should be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You can then type in the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be good to go. The protection shall be turned on straightaway, so anybody who attempts to access the freshly secured folder shall have to type in the correct login information. In case various people have to be able to access the exact same content, you could make a separate username for each one.
