A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the proper login credentials are supplied. This can be a whole Internet site or simply one page that's located in a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up in which you will have to input a username and a password. If you enter the right ones, you can continue browsing the content with no need to do anything more. In case the login details are not correct, however, you will see information that you are not permitted to view the content. When this feature is activated, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The feature is quite handy if you need to limit the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Website Hosting

Creating a password-protected area will take just several clicks and a few seconds when you host your Internet sites in a website hosting account with our company. You won't have to do anything challenging - you will need to choose a domain/subdomain, to pick which folder under it must be secured, and then to type in the login name and password that'll be used to access that folder. When a number of people require their own login credentials, there will not be a problem to set up numerous different usernames with access to the exact same folder. All secured folders will appear with a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you'll always know where this feature is enabled. If you want to deactivate the security feature for any folder, you can deactivate it from the same section of the Control Panel where you have enabled it.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to secure any content that you have uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is part of, so you'll not need to enter any code at any time. You will simply need to pick one of the domains/subdomains you have in the website hosting account and to choose which folder should be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You can then type in the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be good to go. The protection will be activated immediately, so anybody who tries to access the newly secured folder shall have to input the right login info. In cases where several people must be able to open precisely the same content, you could make a separate username for each of them.
