A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the correct login details are offered. This could be an entire site or only one page which is in a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up where you will need to type a username and also a password. If you type the appropriate ones, you can continue exploring the content without having to do anything additional. If the login credentials aren't accurate, however, you shall see a note that you aren't permitted to view the content. In case this feature is active, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The option is incredibly effective if you need to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Web Hosting

Creating a password-protected area shall take merely a few mouse clicks and a few seconds when you host your Internet sites in a shared web hosting account with us. You'll not need to do anything challenging - you will have to pick a domain/subdomain, to choose which folder under it has to be secured, and then to type in the login name and password which will be used to access that folder. In case a number of people need their own login details, there won't be a problem to create several different usernames with access to the exact same folder. All secured folders will appear with a padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you shall always know where this function is enabled. If you wish to deactivate the security function for any folder, you can disable it from the same section of the CP where you have enabled it.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to set up password protection for any content you have inside your semi-dedicated server account. We have included an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel through which you will be able to activate the function with a number of clicks and with no complications, even if you're not very tech-savvy. You'll only need to choose the hostname (domain or subdomain), the particular folder that should be secured (the primary folder or a subfolder) and the login name and password. The protection will take effect immediately, so if you attempt to open the password-protected URL within your web browser, you'll have to input the newly created login details in order to proceed. You'll also be able to give different usernames for the exact same folder to a number of individuals, so you will not need to share the same login credentials with anyone. Each password-protected folder shall have a little padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you will be able to recognize this sort of folders effortlessly.
