A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the correct login details are supplied. This could be a whole Internet site or only a single page which is located within a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up where you have to type in a username as well as a password. If you enter the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue exploring the content without having to do anything else. In case the login details are not accurate, however, you'll see information that you aren't authorized to look at the content. In case this function is active, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is very useful if you wish to restrict the access to some content or if you are creating a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.

If you use any of our cloud hosting products, you'll be able to create password-protected areas easily even if you don't have any experience with this kind of matters. We've built in an incredibly easy-to-use point-and-click tool in the Hepsia CP, provided with all accounts, so you will be able to protect any folder within just a few seconds. You will have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the particular folder that must be protected (the main one or a subfolder), and then to input the preferred username and password which will be used to access the folder in question later on. Any protected folder shall have padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you will be able to see at a glance what content is secured and what's not. If necessary, you can create a number of different sets of login credentials for exactly the same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

Securing any folder with a password shall be quite simple if you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account with us. A user-friendly tool, that is integrated into the Hepsia Control Panel, will allow you to choose the specific folder you would like to protect with a couple of mouse clicks and all you will need to type in shall be the username and the password which will be used to access it afterwards. You won't encounter any problems even if you haven't had a website hosting account before, due to the fact that you do not need any previous knowledge or computer programming skills to switch on the feature. If you repeat the same basic steps, you shall be able to create different usernames for the very same password-protected area, so a number of people will be able to access a particular folder with their own login details. You will be able to see the protected folders at a glance either in exactly the same section of the CP or inside the File Manager section where you will detect them by their tiny padlock icons.
