A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the right login details are supplied. This may be a whole website or just a single page which is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up where you will need to input a username and also a password. If you type in the correct ones, you can continue browsing the content with no need to do anything extra. In case the login credentials aren't right, however, you will see information that you are not permitted to look at the content. In case this function is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is extremely handy if you want to restrict the access to some content or if you work on a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

With the password protection tool that is included with each and every cloud hosting plan that we provide, you shall be able to protect any content that you have within your account with merely a few mouse clicks. Because the tool is part of our revolutionary Hepsia Control Panel, it has the same uncomplicated interface and you shall not need any special skills to use it. Once you navigate to the Password Protection section, you'll have to select one of the domains or subdomains that you have within the account and then choose whether the protection should be active for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type in the username and the password that you would like and you shall be set. A tiny padlock symbol in the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the exact same way you will be able to include several usernames and passwords for the same folder if you want several people to have their own login credentials.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll be able to shield any content which you have uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's a part of, so you will not need to write any code at any time. You'll only have to select one of the domains/subdomains which you have in the website hosting account and to pick which folder should be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You can then type the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be all set. The protection will be switched on at once, so anybody who attempts to access the recently protected folder shall have to type in the right login details. In case several people must be able to access precisely the same content, you could set up a separate username for each of them.
