A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the right login details are provided. This can be an entire website or simply one page that is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up where you must type a username and a password. If you type in the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue exploring the content without needing to do anything extra. When the login details are not accurate, however, you shall see a message that you aren't allowed to view the content. If this option is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The option is very practical if you want to restrict the access to some content or if you are creating a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Website Hosting

With the password protection tool that is included with every cloud website hosting package deal that we offer, you will be able to protect any content that you have inside your account with merely a few clicks. As the tool is a component of our revolutionary Hepsia Control Panel, it offers exactly the same simple interface and you shall not require any special skills to use it. Once you check out the Password Protection section, you'll have to pick one of the domains or subdomains that you have within the account and then decide if the protection should be active for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password that you would like and you shall be all set to go. A little padlock icon inside the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the same exact way you'll be able to add numerous usernames and passwords for the same folder if you would like several people to have their own login credentials.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to create password protection for any content that you have inside your semi-dedicated server account. We have added an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel through which you shall be able to activate the function with a number of clicks and with no complications, even if you're not very tech-savvy. You'll only have to select the hostname (domain or subdomain), the specific folder which must be protected (the primary folder or a subfolder) plus the login name and password. The protection will take effect immediately, so if you make an attempt to open the password-protected URL in your browser, you will have to type in the newly created login credentials before you can proceed. Additionally, you will be able to give different usernames for the same folder to a number of individuals, so you'll not have to share the same login details with everybody. Any password-protected folder will have a little padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you will be able to recognize this kind of folders easily.
