A password-protected directory or area is a folder which could be accessed only when a username and a password are entered, so no unauthorized individuals can observe its content. This feature can be used for the primary folder of a specific site or just for a certain subfolder in accordance with your requirements. As an example, when you are developing a new Internet site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being ready, you have to prohibit the access to it completely, and if you need only some people to be able to access certain files, you can password-protect only a specific folder, while the other parts of the website could be seen by anybody. In either case, a “403 Forbidden” error page will appear in the event that the login details the visitor types in are not accurate. Even a direct link to a file shall not work if any folder above it is password-protected.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

With the password protection tool that comes with each cloud hosting plan that we provide, you will be able to protect any content which you have in your account with only a few mouse clicks. Due to the fact that the tool is a component of our ground breaking Hepsia Control Panel, it provides the exact same uncomplicated interface and you will not require any special skills to use it. As soon as you visit the Password Protection section, you will need to choose one of the domains or subdomains that you have within the account and then decide whether the protection should be activated for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password that you want and you will be all set. A small padlock symbol in the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the exact same way you'll be able to add many usernames and passwords for the same folder if you would like several people to have their own login credentials.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall 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 is part of, so you'll not need to type in any code at any time. You will simply need to pick one of the domains/subdomains you have inside the website hosting account and to determine which folder should be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can type the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be ready. The protection shall be enabled instantly, so anybody who attempts to access the recently secured folder will have to enter the accurate login information. If various individuals must be able to access exactly the same content, you could make a separate username for each.
