A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the correct login credentials are supplied. This could be a whole site or only a single page that is located in a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you will see a browser pop-up where you have to enter a username and a password. In case you enter the correct ones, you'll be able to continue exploring the content without having to do anything else. In case the login credentials aren't correct, however, you will see a note that you aren't allowed to look at the content. When this feature is active, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is extremely practical if you'd like to limit the access to some content or if you work on an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.

With the password protection tool provided with each and every cloud hosting package that we offer, you shall be able to secure any content that you have inside your account with only a few mouse clicks. Because the tool is an element of our innovative Hepsia CP, it has the same simple interface and you shall not require any special skills to use it. As soon as you go to the Password Protection section, you will have to choose one of the domains or subdomains you have within the account and then decide if the protection should be active for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password that you'd like and you'll be set. A little padlock symbol within the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to create password protection for any content which you have within your semi-dedicated server account. We have integrated an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel where you will be able to activate the function with a number of clicks and without any problems, even if you are not really tech-savvy. You will simply have to choose the hostname (domain or subdomain), the particular folder which must be secured (the main folder or a subfolder) and the login name and password. The protection shall take effect instantly, so if you make an attempt to open the password-protected URL in your Internet browser, you will have to input the newly created login credentials before you proceed. Additionally, you will be able to give different usernames for the exact same folder to a number of people, so you will not need to share the same login credentials with anybody. Each password-protected folder shall have a small padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you will be able to recognize such folders effortlessly.
