A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the right login details are supplied. This may be an entire website or only one page that's in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up where you will need to type a username and a password. If you enter the right ones, you can continue browsing the content with no need to do anything more. When the login credentials are not accurate, however, you shall see a message that you are not permitted to see the content. In case this feature is activated, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is quite practical if you wish to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting

All of our shared plans feature a really convenient tool that'll permit you to protect any folder inside your account from unauthorized access with just 2 clicks. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia web hosting CP, you'll only have to go to the Password Protection section, to pick the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which should be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type in the username and the password which should be used to access the content in question. The function shall be turned on immediately, so in case you try to open the folder/website, you will be prompted to enter the login credentials. You may set up or remove many usernames for the same folder, if necessary. When you go to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be marked with a tiny padlock icon.

It will require just a few clicks to activate the password protection feature for any folder that you have, when you use one of our semi-dedicated plans. We have an incredibly helpful tool, that offers a user-friendly point-and-click interface and which can be used by people with no experience. It is an element of the Hepsia CP, which you'll get to manage your new account and as soon as you log in and navigate to the Password Protection section, you shall be able to select the domain or subdomain that needs to be secured and then the exact folder - either the primary folder or any subfolder under it. You shall also see 2 boxes in which you will have to type in the login name and the password that will be needed to access the folder in question and you shall be all set. By following the exact same steps, you can set up a variety of login credentials for the exact same folder to give several people their own username/password. All protected folders shall feature a small padlock sign in the File Manager section.
