A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the right login credentials are supplied. This can be a whole Internet site or only a single page which is located in a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you shall see a browser pop-up where you have to type in a username and a password. In case you type the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content with no need to do anything more. When the login details are not right, however, you shall see a note that you aren't authorized to view the content. If this feature is activated, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The option is incredibly effective if you need to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

Setting up a password-protected area shall take just several clicks and a few seconds when you host your websites within a cloud hosting account with us. You shall not need to do anything complex - you will have to choose a domain/subdomain, to pick which folder under it must be secured, and then to type in the login name and password which will be used to access that folder. When a number of people need their own login details, there won't be a problem to set up several different usernames with access to the very same folder. All secured folders will appear with a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you shall always know where this option is active. If you would like to deactivate the protection function for any folder, you can disable it from the same section of the CP where 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 inside 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 feature with a few mouse clicks and without any complications, even if you are not really tech-savvy. You will only have to choose the hostname (domain or subdomain), the particular folder that must be protected (the main folder or a subfolder) and the login name and password. The protection shall take effect instantaneously, so if you make an attempt to open the password-protected URL in your browser, you will need to type in the newly created login details in order to proceed. You will also be able to give different usernames for the very same folder to a number of people, so you'll not need to share the same login details with anybody. Each password-protected folder will have a small padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you will be able to recognize such folders effortlessly.
