A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the proper login details are provided. This can be an entire website or simply one page that's located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up where you will have to enter a username and also a password. If you enter the appropriate ones, you can continue browsing the content without having to do anything more. If the login details aren't correct, however, you will see information that you aren't allowed to see the content. When this option is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is very effective if you'd like to prohibit the access to some content or if you are creating an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

Password Protected Directories in Hosting

Setting up a password-protected area will take merely a couple of mouse clicks and a few seconds when you host your sites in a hosting account with our company. You won't have to do anything challenging - you will need to select a domain/subdomain, to choose which folder under it must be secured, and then to type in the login name and password which will be used to access that folder. When a number of people require their own login credentials, there shall not be a problem to create several different usernames with access to the same exact folder. All protected folders shall appear with a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you shall always know where this option is activated. If you'd like to disable the protection feature for any folder, you can disable it from the very same section of the CP where you have enabled it.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall be able to secure any content which you have uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's part of, so you shall not need to input any code at any time. You'll only need to pick one of the domains/subdomains that you have inside the web hosting account and to choose which folder must be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. After that you can enter the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be good to go. The protection will be enabled at once, so anyone who attempts to access the freshly protected folder shall have to enter the correct login information. In cases where various individuals should be able to access precisely the same content, you could make a separate username for each of them.
