A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the correct login credentials are provided. This may be a whole website or just one page which is located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up where you will need to type a username as well as a password. If you type the appropriate ones, you can continue surfing around the content without needing to do anything extra. If the login details are not accurate, however, you shall see a note that you are not permitted to see the content. If this option is activated, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is very effective if you need to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Website Hosting

With the password protection tool supplied with every single cloud website hosting package deal which we provide, you will be able to secure any content which you have inside your account with simply a few clicks. Because the tool is a component of our revolutionary Hepsia CP, it features the same uncomplicated interface and you will not require any special skills to use it. Once you visit the Password Protection section, you will need to choose one of the domains or subdomains which you have within the account and then choose whether the protection should be active for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password that you'd like and you will be all set to go. A small padlock symbol inside the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the same exact way you'll be able to add several 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 Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to shield any content you have uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it is a part of, so you'll not need to write any code at any time. You'll only need to select one of the domains/subdomains which you have in the hosting account and to pick which folder should be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then enter the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be good to go. The protection shall be switched on at once, so anyone that attempts to access the recently secured folder shall have to type in the right login info. In case various individuals have to be able to open the exact same content, you can create a separate username for each one.
