A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the right login details are provided. This may be an entire website or just a single page that's located within a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up where you will have to input a username and a password. In case you enter the right ones, you'll be able to continue exploring the content with no need to do anything more. In case the login details aren't correct, however, you will see a note that you are not allowed to see the content. In case this feature is active, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The feature is incredibly effective if you'd like to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Web Hosting

If you use any of our cloud web hosting products, you will be able to set up password-protected areas effortlessly even if you have no experience with this sort of matters. We have incorporated an extremely easy-to-use point-and-click tool within the Hepsia CP, provided with all accounts, so you'll be able to shield any folder within just seconds. You'll only have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the exact folder that has to be secured (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to type the username and password which will be used to access the folder in question later on. Each protected folder shall have padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you will be able to see easily what content is secured and what is not. If needed, you can create a number of sets of login details for the exact same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to protect any content which you have uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's a part of, so you will not need to type in any code at any time. You'll simply need to choose one of the domains/subdomains which you have inside the web hosting account and to select which folder must be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. After that you can input the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be ready. The protection shall be turned on right away, so anybody who tries to access the recently secured folder shall have to input the accurate login info. In case several people must be able to access exactly the same content, you could set up a separate username for each one.
