A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the correct login credentials are offered. This can be a whole website or only a single page that is located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you will see a browser pop-up in which you will need to type a username as well as a password. In case you type the appropriate ones, you can continue exploring the content without needing to do anything extra. If the login credentials are not right, however, you'll see a note that you are not authorized to look at the content. When this function is active, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is quite practical if you wish to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Hosting

If you use any of our hosting packages, you can create password-protected areas easily even if you have no experience with this kind of matters. We've integrated an incredibly easy-to-use point-and-click tool within the Hepsia CP, provided with all accounts, so you will be able to shield any folder within just seconds. You will 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 input the desired username and password that will be used to access the folder in question later on. Every protected folder shall have padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see at a glance what content is secured and what is not. When necessary, you could make a number of sets of login details for the exact same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to set up password protection for any content you have inside your semi-dedicated server account. We have added an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel via which you shall be able to activate the function with a number of mouse clicks and without any difficulties, even if you're not quite tech-savvy. You'll only need to pick the hostname (domain or subdomain), the specific folder that needs to be protected (the main folder or a subfolder) and the login name and password. The protection shall take effect right away, so if you make an effort to open the password-protected URL within your browser, you will need to input the newly created login details in order to proceed. You'll also be able to give different usernames for the very same folder to a number of people, so you'll not need to share the same login details with anyone. Any password-protected folder shall have a compact padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you will be able to recognize this type of folders effortlessly.
