A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the correct login details are supplied. This can be a whole site or only a single page that's located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up where you have to type in a username and also a password. If you type in the right ones, you can continue surfing around the content with no need to do anything more. When the login details are not accurate, however, you shall see a message that you aren't allowed to see the content. When this feature is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is very practical if you need to prohibit 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 Cloud Hosting

If you use any of our cloud hosting packages, you shall be able to set up password-protected areas easily even if you have no experience with this type of matters. We've incorporated a very easy-to-use point-and-click tool into the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts, so you will be able to secure any folder within merely seconds. You will have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder that must be protected (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to type the username and password that will be used to access the folder in question in the future. Any secured folder will have a padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see immediately what content is secured and what's not. If required, you could make a number of sets of login credentials for precisely the same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

Protecting any folder with a password will be very easy if you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account with our company. A user-friendly tool, which is built into the Hepsia CP, will enable you to pick the specific folder you would like to secure with a few mouse clicks and all you'll have to input will be the username and the password that'll be used to access it afterwards. You'll not encounter any troubles even if you have never had a hosting account before, due to the fact that you do not need any previous knowledge or computer programming skills to switch on the function. If you repeat the same very simple steps, you shall be able to create various usernames for the exact same password-protected area, so a number of people shall be able to access a given folder with their own login credentials. You will be able to see the secured folders at a glance either in the same section of the Control Panel or inside the File Manager section where you'll recognize them by their small padlock icons.
