A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the correct login credentials are offered. This can be a whole site or only a single page that is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up where you will have to type in a username as well as a password. If you type the appropriate ones, you can continue exploring the content without the need to do anything else. When the login credentials are not right, however, you will see information that you aren't permitted to view the content. If this function is active, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is incredibly effective if you'd like to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Website Hosting

If you use any of our shared website hosting solutions, you'll be able to create password-protected areas without difficulty even if you have zero experience with this type of matters. We have built in an extremely easy-to-use point-and-click tool within the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts, so you shall be able to shield any folder within just a few seconds. You'll simply have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the exact folder that must be secured (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to enter the desired username and password that will be used to access the folder in question at some point. Every secured folder will have a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see easily what content is protected and what is not. If necessary, you can make several different sets of login details for precisely the same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Protecting any folder with a password will be quite simple if you host your websites inside a semi-dedicated server account with us. A user-friendly tool, which is built into the Hepsia Control Panel, will allow you to select the specific folder which you want to secure with a few clicks and all you'll need to type will be the username and the password that will be used to access it afterwards. You won't experience any problems even if you haven't had a web hosting account before, considering that you don't need any previous knowledge or programming skills to activate the feature. If you repeat the same basic steps, you will be able to set up numerous usernames for the very same password-protected area, so a number of people will be able to access a given folder with their own login credentials. You shall be able to see the secured folders very easily either in the very same section of the Control Panel or in the File Manager section where you'll recognize them by their tiny padlock icons.
