A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the correct login details are supplied. This could be a whole website or just a single page which is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up where you will have to type a username and a password. In case you enter the correct ones, you can continue surfing around the content without the need to do anything else. If the login credentials aren't right, however, you shall see information that you aren't permitted to see the content. In case this feature is activated, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is extremely useful if you'd like to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

As soon as you log in to your Hepsia web hosting CP, you'll just have to navigate to the Password Protection section, to select the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that needs to be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to input the username and the password which should be used in order to access the content in question. The function will be active at once, so if you attempt to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to input the login credentials. You could create or remove multiple usernames for the exact same folder, if required.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to set up password protection for any content you have within your semi-dedicated server account. We have added an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel using which you shall be able to enable the feature with a few clicks and with no complications, even if you're not really tech-savvy. You'll only need to pick the hostname (domain or subdomain), the particular folder which needs 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 inside your browser, you'll need to enter the newly created login details before you can proceed. You will also be able to give different usernames for the very same folder to a number of people, so you will not need to share the same login details with everyone. Each password-protected folder will have a small padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you shall be able to recognize such folders effortlessly.
