A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the correct login credentials are supplied. This may be a whole site or only one page that's in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you'll see a web browser pop-up where you have to input a username as well as a password. If you input the correct ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content with no need to do anything else. If the login details are not correct, however, you will see information that you are not allowed to look at the content. If this feature is active, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is extremely effective if you need to prohibit the access to some content or if you are creating a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

When you use any of our cloud hosting solutions, you will be able to create password-protected areas with ease even if you don't have any experience with such matters. We've built in a very easy-to-use point-and-click tool in the Hepsia Control Panel, offered with all accounts, so you shall be able to protect any folder within just seconds. You will have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the exact folder which has to be secured (the main one or a subfolder), and then to input the username and password that'll be used to access the folder in question in the future. Each protected folder will have a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see easily what content is protected 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 Servers

Securing any folder with a password will be very simple if you host your Internet sites within a semi-dedicated server account with our company. A user-friendly tool, which is integrated into the Hepsia Control Panel, will permit you to choose the particular folder that you want to secure with a few clicks and all you'll have to type in will be the username and the password that will be used to access it later. You'll not encounter any troubles even if you have not had a hosting account before, because you do not need any previous knowledge or programming skills to activate the feature. If you repeat the same simple steps, you will be able to set up many usernames for the very same password-protected area, so many people shall be able to access a particular folder with their own login details. You shall be able to see the protected folders conveniently either in the same section of the CP or in the File Manager section where you shall detect them by their little padlock icons.
