A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are supplied. This may be an entire website or just one page that's situated in a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up where you will have to input a username and a password. In case you type in the correct ones, you can continue surfing around the content without the need to do anything additional. If the login credentials aren't accurate, however, you'll see a message that you aren't allowed to look at the content. If this feature is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is extremely practical if you wish to restrict the access to some content or if you are creating an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Hosting

With the password protection tool provided with each and every hosting plan that we offer, you will be able to secure any content that you have in your account with merely a few clicks. Due to the fact that the tool is part of our revolutionary Hepsia CP, it has the same simple interface and you will not need any special skills to use it. As soon as you check out the Password Protection section, you will need to select one of the domains or subdomains you have within the account and then choose if the protection should be switched on for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then type in the username and the password you want and you shall be all set. A little padlock symbol within the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the very same way you will be able to include many usernames and passwords for the same folder if you'd like several people to have their own login credentials.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to set up password protection for any content which you have within your semi-dedicated server account. We have included an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel via which you will be able to enable the feature with several clicks and with no troubles, even if you're not quite tech-savvy. You'll simply need to pick the hostname (domain or subdomain), the particular folder which has to be secured (the primary folder or a subfolder) as well as the login name and password. The protection shall take effect immediately, so if you make an attempt to open the password-protected URL inside your web browser, you will have to input the newly created login details in order to proceed. Additionally, you will be able to give different usernames for the exact same folder to a number of individuals, so you will not have to share the same login credentials with everyone. Any password-protected folder will have a tiny padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you shall be able to recognize this kind of folders in no time.
