A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are supplied. This can be an entire Internet site or simply a single page which is located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up where you will have to enter a username and also a password. If you type in the right ones, you can continue browsing the content without the need to do anything else. When the login credentials aren't correct, however, you'll see a note that you aren't permitted to see the content. If this option is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is incredibly handy if you want to limit the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

We've built in a very easy-to-use point-and-click tool within the Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with all accounts, so you'll be able to secure any folder within just seconds. You'll only have to select a domain or a subdomain and the particular folder which must be protected (the main one or a subfolder), and then to type in the preferred username and password that will be used to access the folder in question later on. Each protected folder will have a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you will be able to see at a glance what content is secured and what's not. If needed, you could make a number of sets of login credentials for the exact same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to create password protection for any content which you have within your semi-dedicated server account. We have integrated an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel using which you will be able to enable the feature with several clicks and without any complications, even if you're not very tech-savvy. You'll simply need to pick the hostname (domain or subdomain), the particular folder which should be secured (the main folder or a subfolder) and the login name and password. The protection shall take effect immediately, so if you make an attempt to open the password-protected URL within your Internet browser, you will need to enter the newly created login details in order to proceed. You will also be able to give different usernames for the very same folder to a number of people, so you'll not have to share the same login details with anyone. Any password-protected folder will have a little padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you'll be able to recognize such folders easily.
