A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the proper login details are offered. This could be a whole Internet site or only one page which is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up in which you will have to type in a username and also a password. If you enter the appropriate ones, you can continue surfing around the content without having to do anything additional. In case the login details are not accurate, however, you will see information that you are not authorized to view the content. When this function is activated, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is incredibly handy 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 prior to it being ready.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

If you use any of our cloud hosting products, you can set up password-protected areas easily even if you have zero experience with this type of matters. We've incorporated a very easy-to-use point-and-click tool in the Hepsia CP, offered with all accounts, so you will be able to secure any folder within a matter of seconds. You will only have to select a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder which must be secured (the main one or a subfolder), and then to type the username and password that will be used to access the folder in question at some point. Any secured folder will have a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you will be able to see immediately what content is secured and what is not. When necessary, you could make a number of different sets of login details for precisely the same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to protect any content you have uploaded using our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it's a part of, so you will not need to write any code at any time. You'll simply have to choose one of the domains/subdomains which you have in the website hosting account and to select which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. After that you can enter the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be ready. The protection will be enabled instantly, so anyone who tries to access the newly protected folder will have to input the right login details. When several people must be able to access precisely the same content, you can create a separate username for each of them.
