A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are provided. This could be a whole site or just one page that's located in a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up in which you must enter a username as well as a password. If you enter the correct ones, you can continue exploring the content with no need to do anything additional. In case the login details are not correct, however, you shall see information that you aren't authorized to look at the content. In case this feature is activated, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is very effective if you want to limit the access to some content or if you are creating a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting

If you use any of our shared hosting plans, you can make password-protected areas easily even if you have zero experience with this kind of matters. We have incorporated a very easy-to-use point-and-click tool in the Hepsia CP, offered with all accounts, so you will be able to protect any folder within a matter of seconds. You will have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the particular folder that should be protected (the main one or a subfolder), and then to input the preferred username and password that'll be used to access the folder in question when you need it. Any secured folder will have a padlock icon within 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 sets of login details for exactly the same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to set up password protection for any content which you have within your semi-dedicated server account. We've included an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel through which you will be able to activate the function with several mouse clicks and without any troubles, even if you are not really tech-savvy. You'll simply have to select the hostname (domain or subdomain), the specific folder which needs to be protected (the main folder or a subfolder) as well as the login name and password. The protection will take effect immediately, so if you try to open the password-protected URL in your web browser, you'll need to input the newly created login credentials in order to proceed. You will also be able to give different usernames for the very same folder to a number of individuals, so you will not need to share the same login credentials with anyone. Any password-protected folder will have a tiny padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you'll be able to recognize this sort of folders with ease.
