A password-protected directory or area is a folder which can be accessed only if a username and a password are provided, so no unauthorized people could check out its content. This feature could be used for the primary folder of a given website or just for a certain subfolder depending on your preferences. As an illustration, if you are creating a new Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it's completely ready, you might want to prohibit the access to it as a whole, whereas if you need only some people to be able to access specific files, you are able to password-protect only a certain folder, while the other parts of the website can be seen by anybody. Either way, a “403 Forbidden” error page shall appear in case the login details the visitor types in aren't accurate. Even a direct link to a file won't work if any folder above it is password-protected.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

With the password protection tool that is included with each cloud hosting plan that we provide, you'll be able to secure any content which you have within your account with merely a few clicks. Since the tool is part of our revolutionary Hepsia CP, it offers exactly the same uncomplicated interface and you will not require any special skills to use it. As soon as you go to the Password Protection section, you'll need to select one of the domains or subdomains that you have within the account and then decide whether the protection should be turned on for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password that you would like and you will be all set. A little padlock symbol within the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the same way you will be able to add several usernames and passwords for the same folder if you want several people to have their own login credentials.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to protect any content that you've uploaded using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's a part of, so you shall not need to type in any code at any time. You'll simply need to pick one of the domains/subdomains which you have inside the website hosting account and to determine which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can type in the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be good to go. The protection will be activated at once, so anybody who attempts to access the newly protected folder shall have to enter the correct login info. If various people must be able to open exactly the same content, you can create a separate username for each one.
