A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the right login credentials are offered. This could be a whole website or just a single page that is located in a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you will see a browser pop-up where you will need to type a username and also a password. If you enter the right ones, you can continue browsing the content with no need to do anything more. When the login credentials are not right, however, you shall see a message that you are not permitted to view the content. When this feature is active, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is quite useful if you'd like to restrict the access to some content or if you are developing an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Web Hosting

All of our cloud web hosting include an exceptionally convenient tool that'll permit you to shield any folder within your account from unauthorized access with just two mouse clicks. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will simply have to go to the Password Protection section, to pick the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that needs to be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type in the username and the password that should be used in order to access the content in question. The function will be active at once, so if you attempt to open the folder/website, you will be prompted to type in the login information. You may set up or remove many usernames for the same folder, when necessary. If you navigate to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be indicated by a compact padlock icon.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to shield any content which you have uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it's a part of, so you'll not need to type in any code at any time. You'll only need to select one of the domains/subdomains that you have inside the hosting account and to determine which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can enter the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be ready. The protection shall be enabled right away, so anybody who attempts to access the freshly secured folder will have to type in the right login information. If several individuals must be able to access exactly the same content, you could set up a separate username for each.
