A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the proper login credentials are provided. This can be a whole Internet site or just a single page that's located within a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you shall see a browser pop-up in which you must enter a username and also a password. In case you enter the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without needing to do anything else. In case the login credentials aren't correct, however, you shall see information that you are not authorized to view the content. If this feature is active, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is very useful if you need to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

With the password protection tool that is included with each cloud hosting package that we provide, you will be able to secure any content that you have in your account with just a few mouse clicks. As the tool is an element of our innovative Hepsia CP, it provides the same uncomplicated interface and you will not require any special skills to use it. When you visit the Password Protection section, you'll have to choose one of the domains or subdomains that you have in the account and then choose if the protection should be turned on for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then enter the username and the password that you want and you'll be set. A little padlock icon in the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the same way you will be able to add multiple 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 will be able to shield any content that you've uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's part of, so you will not have to type in any code at any time. You will simply have to pick one of the domains/subdomains you have inside the hosting account and to pick which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can input the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be good to go. The protection will be switched on instantly, so anyone who tries to access the recently protected folder will have to input the right login details. In cases where a number of individuals must be able to open the exact same content, you could set up a separate username for each one.
