A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the correct login details are provided. This could be an entire site or only one page that is situated in a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you shall see a browser pop-up in which you have to type a username and a password. In case you input the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without having to do anything else. In case the login details aren't correct, however, you will see a message that you are not authorized to look at the content. If this function is active, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is quite handy if you need to limit the access to some content or if you are creating a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
Password Protected Directories in Hosting
All of our hosting plans feature an exceptionally useful tool which will allow you to protect any folder in your account from unauthorized access with simply two clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting CP, you'll simply have to go to the Password Protection section, to pick the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which has to be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to enter the username and the password which must be used to access the content in question. The function will be activated straightaway, so in case you make an effort to open the folder/website, you will be prompted to type in the login credentials. You may set up or remove numerous usernames for the same folder, if necessary. When you go to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be shown with a small padlock icon.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to create password protection for any content you have in your semi-dedicated server account. We have included an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel through which you shall be able to activate the function with a few mouse clicks and without any problems, even if you're not very tech-savvy. You will only have to pick the hostname (domain or subdomain), the exact folder that should be secured (the main folder or a subfolder) plus the login name and password. The protection shall take effect right away, so if you attempt to open the password-protected URL inside your Internet browser, you'll need to type in the newly created login credentials before you can proceed. Additionally, you will be able to give different usernames for the very same folder to a number of people, so you will not have to share the same login details with everybody. Each password-protected folder shall have a compact padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you will be able to recognize such folders with ease.
