A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are provided. This may be a whole site or only one page that's situated in a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up where you will need to enter a username and a password. If you type the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content without the need to do anything more. If the login details are not accurate, however, you shall see information that you are not allowed to see the content. If this feature is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The feature is very handy if you need to prohibit the access to some content or if you are creating a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting

With the password protection tool provided with every single shared hosting package deal that we provide, you shall be able to shield any content that you have in your account with just a few clicks. Due to the fact that the tool is part of our ground breaking Hepsia Control Panel, it features the same uncomplicated interface and you shall not require any special skills to use it. When you go to the Password Protection section, you will need to pick one of the domains or subdomains which you have within the account and then decide whether the protection should be activated for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password you want and you will be all set to go. A little padlock symbol inside the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the same way you'll be able to add many usernames and passwords for the same folder if you would like several people to have their own login credentials.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to set up password protection for any content you have within your semi-dedicated server account. We have integrated an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel through which you will be able to enable the function with a few clicks and with no complications, even if you are not very tech-savvy. You'll simply have to pick the hostname (domain or subdomain), the exact folder that needs to be protected (the main folder or a subfolder) and the login name and password. The protection will take effect right away, so if you make an attempt to open the password-protected URL in your Internet browser, you'll need to type in the newly created login credentials in order to proceed. Additionally, you'll be able to give different usernames for the same folder to a number of people, so you will not have to share the same login credentials with anyone. Any password-protected folder shall have a compact padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you'll be able to recognize this type of folders in no time.
