A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the correct login details are provided. This may be a whole site or just a single page that is located in a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up in which you will have to type in a username as well as a password. In case you type the appropriate ones, you can continue exploring the content without the need to do anything else. In case the login credentials aren't correct, however, you will see a note that you aren't permitted to look at the content. When this option is activated, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is extremely useful if you'd like to limit the access to some content or if you are creating a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting

All of our shared services feature a very handy tool which will allow you to shield any folder in your account from unauthorized access with simply two mouse clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia website hosting CP, you'll simply have to go to the Password Protection section, to choose the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which should be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type in the username and the password that have to be used to access the content in question. The feature shall be turned on at once, so in case you attempt to open the folder/website, you'll be prompted to type in the login info. You could create or remove a number of usernames for the exact same folder, if required. If you go to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be shown with a little padlock icon.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Securing any folder with a password shall be quite simple if you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account with our company. A user-friendly tool, that is integrated into the Hepsia CP, will allow you to pick the specific folder that you want to protect with a few mouse clicks and all you will need to input shall be the username and the password that'll be used to access it afterwards. You will not experience any problems even if you have never had a website hosting account before, due to the fact that you don't need any previous knowledge or coding skills to switch on the feature. If you repeat the same simple steps, you will be able to set up many usernames for the same password-protected area, so many people will be able to access a particular folder with their own login credentials. You will be able to see the secured folders easily either in the same section of the Control Panel or inside the File Manager section where you will identify them by their little padlock icons.
