A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are provided. This can be a whole Internet site or only a single page that is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up where you must type in a username and a password. If you enter the right ones, you can continue exploring the content with no need to do anything extra. In case the login details aren't accurate, however, you shall see a message that you aren't allowed to look at the content. When this function is activated, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is extremely effective if you want to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Website Hosting

All of our Linux shared website hosting service include a really convenient tool that'll enable you to shield any folder within your account from unauthorized access with simply two clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting CP, you will only have to go to the Password Protection section, to pick the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that needs to be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to input the username and the password that should be used to access the content in question. The function will be active at once, so in case you try to open the folder/website, you'll be prompted to type in the login credentials. You may create or remove numerous usernames for the exact same folder, if required. If you navigate to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be marked with a small padlock icon.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to create password protection for any content which you have within your semi-dedicated server account. We've added an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel through which you will be able to enable the feature with a few mouse clicks and without any difficulties, even if you're not very tech-savvy. You will only need to choose the hostname (domain or subdomain), the specific folder that needs to be secured (the main folder or a subfolder) as well as the login name and password. The protection will take effect instantly, so if you try to open the password-protected URL in your browser, you'll need to type the newly created login details before you can proceed. Additionally, you will be able to give different usernames for the same folder to a number of individuals, so you will not have to share the same login details with everybody. Any password-protected folder shall have a little padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you will be able to recognize this type of folders easily.
