A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the proper login details are supplied. This could be a whole website or simply a single page that's situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up where you will have to enter a username as well as a password. If you input the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue surfing around the content with no need to do anything extra. In case the login details are not right, however, you will see information that you aren't permitted to see the content. When this function is active, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is very useful if you wish to limit the access to some content or if you are creating a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting

With the password protection tool that is included with each shared hosting plan which we offer, you'll be able to secure any content that you have inside your account with only a few clicks. Since the tool is a component of our ground breaking Hepsia CP, it offers the same simple interface and you'll not need any special skills to use it. When you check out the Password Protection section, you'll need to pick one of the domains or subdomains you have within the account and then choose whether the protection should be activated for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type in the username and the password that you want and you shall be ready. A small padlock icon inside the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the same way you shall be able to include multiple usernames and passwords for the same folder if you want several people to have their own login credentials.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall be able to set up password protection for any content which you have inside your semi-dedicated server account. We've integrated an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel using which you will be able to switch on the function with a number of clicks and with no problems, even if you're not very tech-savvy. You'll only need to pick the hostname (domain or subdomain), the particular folder that must be secured (the primary folder or a subfolder) and the login name and password. The protection shall take effect at once, so if you make an attempt to open the password-protected URL within your web browser, you will need to type the newly created login credentials in order to proceed. You will also be able to give different usernames for the exact same folder to a number of individuals, so you'll not have to share the same login credentials with everybody. Each password-protected folder will have a tiny padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you'll be able to recognize this type of folders easily.
