A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the right login credentials are provided. This can be a whole website or only a single page that is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up in which you must type a username as well as a password. If you type the appropriate ones, you can continue surfing around the content without needing to do anything else. In case the login details aren't accurate, however, you'll see a message that you are not permitted 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 option is incredibly effective if you'd like to prohibit the access to some content or if you are creating an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting

Creating a password-protected area shall take no more than several mouse clicks and a few seconds if you host your sites inside a shared hosting account with us. You will not need to do anything complex - you'll need to select a domain/subdomain, to pick which folder under it should be secured, and then to input the login name and password which will be used to access that folder. In case a number of individuals require their own login credentials, there won't be a problem to set up a number of different usernames with access to the same folder. All secured folders shall appear with a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you shall always know where this feature is enabled. If you'd like to deactivate the protection function for any folder, you can disable it from the same exact section of the Control Panel in which you have enabled it.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall be able to set up password protection for any content that you have in your semi-dedicated server account. We've integrated an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel via which you shall be able to enable the function with a number of mouse clicks and without any problems, even if you're not quite tech-savvy. You'll only have to pick the hostname (domain or subdomain), the specific folder which has to be secured (the main folder or a subfolder) as well as the login name and password. The protection will take effect right away, so if you try to open the password-protected URL within your browser, you will have to enter the newly created login credentials before you proceed. You'll also be able to give different usernames for the very same folder to a number of people, so you'll not have to share the same login details with everyone. Each password-protected folder will have a tiny padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you shall be able to recognize this sort of folders easily.
