A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the right login credentials are provided. This could be a whole website or simply a single page that is situated in a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you will see a browser pop-up where you must type a username and also a password. In case you type in the appropriate ones, you can continue surfing around the content without the need to do anything extra. When the login credentials aren't correct, however, you'll see a message that you are not authorized to see the content. When this option is activated, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is quite effective if you want to prohibit the access to some content or if you are creating an Internet site and you don't 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 incredibly convenient tool that will enable you to secure any folder in your account from unauthorized access with just two 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 needs to be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type the username and the password which have to be used in order to access the content in question. The feature will be active right away, so in case you attempt to open the folder/website, you will be prompted to type in the login info. You could set up or remove many usernames for the very same folder, if required. When you check out the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be indicated by a compact padlock icon.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall be able to secure any content that you have uploaded via our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is part of, so you shall not need to input any code at any time. You will only have to choose one of the domains/subdomains you have inside the web hosting account and to pick which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can type the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be ready. The protection shall be switched on right away, so anyone who tries to access the freshly secured folder will have to enter the accurate login information. When several individuals must be able to access exactly the same content, you can create a separate username for each of them.
