A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the right login details are provided. This can be an entire site or just a single page which is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up in which you will need to type in a username as well as a password. If you enter the correct ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content without needing to do anything extra. In case the login details are not right, however, you will see a message that you are not permitted to see the content. When this feature is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is very useful if you need to restrict the access to some content or if you work on a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting

With the password protection tool supplied with every shared hosting package deal that we offer, you'll be able to protect any content that you have within your account with just a few clicks. As the tool is part of our ground breaking Hepsia CP, it offers exactly the same simple interface and you'll not need any special skills to use it. As soon as you visit the Password Protection section, you'll have to select one of the domains or subdomains which you have inside the account and then choose if the protection should be switched on for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password you want and you will be set. A small padlock symbol within the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the same exact way you will be able to include many usernames and passwords for the same folder if you'd like several people to have their own login credentials.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

It will take a few mouse clicks to enable the password protection feature for any folder which you have, when you use one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans. We have an incredibly helpful tool, which has a user-friendly point-and-click interface and which can be used by people with zero experience. It is part of the Hepsia Control Panel, which you will get to manage your new account as soon as you log in and navigate to the Password Protection section, you will be able to choose the domain or subdomain which should be protected and then the specific folder - either the primary folder or any subfolder under it. You shall also see two boxes where you will have to type in the login name and the password that'll be required to access the folder in question and you will be ready. By following the exact same steps, you can create many different login credentials for the very same folder to give several people their own username/password. All secured folders shall feature a small padlock sign in the File Manager section.
