A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the correct login details are offered. This could be a whole site or just a single page that is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up in which you will need to enter a username as well as a password. If you input the right ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content with no need to do anything extra. In case the login credentials aren't correct, however, you shall see information that you aren't allowed to view the content. In case this option is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is quite effective if you want to restrict the access to some content or if you are creating a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

With the password protection tool that is included with each and every cloud hosting package deal that we provide, you will be able to protect any content that you have within your account with just a few clicks. As the tool is an element of our ground breaking Hepsia Control Panel, it offers the same simple interface and you'll not need any special skills to use it. Once you visit the Password Protection section, you'll have to select one of the domains or subdomains which you have in the account and then decide whether the protection should be switched on for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password that you'd like and you shall be all set. A small padlock symbol within the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the same exact way you shall be able to include numerous usernames and passwords for the same folder if you want several people to have their own login credentials.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to create password protection for any content you have inside your semi-dedicated server account. We've added an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel via which you shall be able to switch on the feature with several mouse clicks and without any complications, even if you are not quite tech-savvy. You'll simply need to select the hostname (domain or subdomain), the particular folder which has to be secured (the primary folder or a subfolder) as well as the login name and password. The protection will take effect immediately, so if you make an effort to open the password-protected URL inside your browser, you'll have to input the newly created login details in order to proceed. You will also be able to give different usernames for the same folder to a number of individuals, so you will not need to share the same login credentials with everyone. Each password-protected folder shall have a small padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you'll be able to recognize this kind of folders easily.
