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 Cloud Hosting

All of our cloud hosting include an exceptionally useful tool that will permit you to protect any folder inside your account from unauthorized access with simply two clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will only have to go 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 which must be used in order to access the content in question. The feature shall be active straightaway, so if you make an effort to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to enter the login details. You can set up or remove numerous usernames for the same folder, if needed. If you check out the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be indicated by a tiny padlock icon.

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.
