A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the proper login details are offered. This may be an entire Internet site or only one page which is located in a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up in which you must type in a username as well as a password. In case you input the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content without the need to do anything else. If the login credentials aren't right, however, you shall see a note that you are not permitted to see the content. In case this function is activated, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The option is quite practical if you wish to restrict the access to some content or if you are creating an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting

With the password protection tool supplied with every shared hosting package which we provide, you will be able to protect any content which you have within your account with merely a few mouse clicks. Because the tool is a component of our innovative Hepsia Control Panel, it features the exact same simple interface and you will not need any special skills to use it. As soon as you go to the Password Protection section, you'll have to choose one of the domains or subdomains you have in the account and then choose if the protection should be turned on for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password that you would like and you will be all set. A small padlock icon inside the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the same way you shall be able to add several usernames and passwords for the same folder if you'd like several people to have their own login credentials.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Protecting any folder with a password will be easy if you host your Internet sites inside a semi-dedicated server account with us. A user-friendly tool, that's incorporated into the Hepsia CP, will enable you to choose the specific folder you'd like to secure with a couple of clicks and all you will need to type will be the username and the password that will be used to access it later. You will not experience any complications even if you haven't had a web hosting account before, because you don't need any previous knowledge or coding skills to activate the feature. If you repeat the same simple steps, you shall be able to create numerous usernames for the very same password-protected area, so a number of people will be able to access a given folder with their own login details. You'll be able to see the protected folders easily either in exactly the same section of the Control Panel or in the File Manager section where you'll identify them by their little padlock icons.
