A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the right login details are offered. This could be a whole Internet site or only one page that's located within a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you'll see a web browser pop-up where you will need to type in a username as well as a password. If you type the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without the need to do anything more. In case the login details aren't accurate, however, you will see information that you aren't permitted to look at the content. If this function is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is extremely practical if you'd like to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Web Hosting

When you use any of our shared web hosting solutions, you can set up password-protected areas without difficulty even if you have no experience with such matters. We have included a very easy-to-use point-and-click tool within the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts, so you'll be able to protect any folder within a matter of seconds. You will only have to choose a domain or a subdomain and the exact folder which should be protected (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to type in the desired username and password which will be used to access the folder in question when you need it. Each and every secured folder shall have padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see immediately what content is secured and what's not. If necessary, you can make a number of different sets of login details for exactly the same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Protecting any folder with a password shall be very easy if you host your sites within a semi-dedicated server account with us. A user-friendly tool, that's incorporated into the Hepsia Control Panel, will allow you to select the particular folder you'd like to secure with a couple of clicks and all you will need to type shall be the username and the password which will be used to access it subsequently. You'll not experience any difficulties even if you have never had a hosting account before, since you do not need any previous knowledge or coding skills to switch on the function. If you repeat the same very simple steps, you shall be able to create different usernames for the same password-protected area, so a number of people shall be able to access a certain folder with their own login details. You shall be able to see the secured folders very easily either in the very same section of the Control Panel or within the File Manager section where you will recognize them by their tiny padlock icons.
