A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the correct login details are offered. This may be a whole website or only a single page which is located within a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up in which you will need to type in a username as well as a password. In case you input the right ones, you can continue browsing the content without the need to do anything else. If the login details are not accurate, however, you'll see a message that you are not allowed to view the content. When this function is active, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The feature is very handy if you want to limit the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Website Hosting

With the password protection tool supplied with each and every website hosting package which we provide, you will be able to shield any content which you have within your account with only a few mouse clicks. Due to the fact that the tool is a component of our innovative Hepsia Control Panel, it features the exact same simple interface and you will not require any special skills to use it. When you navigate to the Password Protection section, you'll have to select one of the domains or subdomains which you have in the account and then decide whether the protection should be active for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password you want and you'll be ready. A small padlock symbol inside the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the very same way you will be able to add multiple usernames and passwords for the same folder if you'd like several people to have their own login credentials.

You'll be able to set up password protection for any content which you have within your semi-dedicated server account. We've included an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel using which you shall be able to enable the feature with a few clicks and with no troubles, even if you are not quite tech-savvy. You'll only have to select the hostname (domain or subdomain), the particular folder which has to be secured (the primary folder or a subfolder) plus the login name and password. The protection shall take effect at once, so if you make an effort to open the password-protected URL in your web browser, you'll need to type in the newly created login credentials in order to proceed. You'll also be able to give different usernames for the same folder to a number of individuals, so you will not have to share the same login details with everyone. Each password-protected folder shall have a compact padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you'll be able to recognize this sort of folders in no time.
