A password-protected directory or area is a folder which could be accessed only when a username and a password are typed in, so no unauthorized individuals can see its content. This feature may be used for the main folder of a certain Internet site or just for a specific subfolder based on the needs you have. For instance, if you are building a new site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completely ready, you might want to prohibit the access to it altogether, and if you want only some individuals to be able to access certain files, you'll be able to password-protect only a certain folder, while the remaining portion of the Internet site may be seen by everyone. In any case, a “403 Forbidden” error page will appear if the login details the visitor types in aren't accurate. Even a direct link to a file shall not work provided any folder above it is password-protected.

Password Protected Directories in Hosting

With the password protection tool supplied with each and every hosting package which we offer, you shall be able to shield any content which you have inside your account with just a few mouse clicks. Due to the fact that the tool is part of our innovative Hepsia CP, it has exactly the same uncomplicated interface and you shall not need any special skills to use it. When you check out the Password Protection section, you will have to pick one of the domains or subdomains that you have within the account and then decide whether the protection should be activated for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password that you want and you shall be set. A tiny padlock icon in the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the same exact way you will be able to add multiple 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 have uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is a part of, so you will not have to type in any code at any time. You'll simply need to choose one of the domains/subdomains you have in the website hosting account and to determine which folder must be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can input the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be all set. The protection will be switched on right away, so anybody who tries to access the newly secured folder shall have to input the accurate login details. If several people must be able to access exactly the same content, you can create a separate username for each of them.
