A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the correct login credentials are supplied. This may be a whole site or simply a single page that's located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up where you have to input a username and a password. If you type in the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue exploring the content with no need to do anything additional. If the login credentials are not right, however, you will see a note that you aren't allowed to view the content. If this function is active, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is extremely useful if you want to restrict the access to some content or if you are creating an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Website Hosting

All of our shared website hosting plans feature an exceptionally convenient tool that'll enable you to secure any folder within your account from unauthorized access with just 2 clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia hosting CP, you'll simply have to go to the Password Protection section, to select the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which needs to be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type the username and the password which must be used in order to access the content in question. The function shall be active at once, so in case you make an effort to open the folder/website, you will be prompted to type in the login credentials. You could set up or remove numerous usernames for the exact same folder, if required. If you navigate to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be shown with a little padlock icon.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll be able to protect any content which you have uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it is part of, so you'll not need to type in any code at any time. You will simply need to pick one of the domains/subdomains that you have in the hosting account and to pick which folder must be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. After that you can type in the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be all set. The protection will be activated immediately, so anyone that tries to access the freshly secured folder will have to type in the correct login details. In case various people have to be able to open precisely the same content, you could make a separate username for each.
