A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the right login details are offered. This can be a whole website or simply one page which is situated in a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you shall see a browser pop-up in which you have to enter a username as well as a password. If you type in the right ones, you'll be able to continue exploring the content without having to do anything else. When the login details are not correct, however, you will see information that you aren't authorized to view the content. If this function is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is very practical if you wish to limit the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to set up password protection for any content which you have within your semi-dedicated server account. We've integrated an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel using which you shall be able to enable the function with a number of clicks and with no problems, even if you're not quite tech-savvy. You will simply have to choose the hostname (domain or subdomain), the particular folder which should be protected (the primary folder or a subfolder) and the login name and password. The protection shall take effect at once, so if you try to open the password-protected URL inside your Internet browser, you will need to type the newly created login details before you proceed. Additionally, you'll be able to give different usernames for the same folder to a number of individuals, so you will not need to share the same login credentials with everybody. Each password-protected folder shall have a small padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you'll be able to recognize such folders in no time.
