A password-protected directory or area is a folder which can be accessed when a username and a password are typed in, so no unauthorized people may look at its content. This feature could be used for the primary folder of a certain Internet site or exclusively for a certain subfolder based upon your needs. As an example, if you are building a new website and you do not want people to see it before it is completely ready, you have to restrict the access to it completely, while if you want only some individuals to be able to access specific files, you may password-protect only a certain folder, while the rest of the Internet site may be seen by anybody. In any case, a “403 Forbidden” error page shall 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 so long as any folder above it is password-protected.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Website Hosting

All of our cloud website hosting include an exceptionally convenient tool which will allow you to shield any folder in your account from unauthorized access with just 2 clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting CP, you will only have to visit the Password Protection section, to choose the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which needs to be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type the username and the password that have to be used in order to access the content in question. The function shall be active instantly, so if you make an effort to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to type in the login details. You can create or remove numerous usernames for the same folder, if required. When you check out the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be shown with a tiny padlock icon.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to secure any content that you've uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is part of, so you'll not have to type in any code at any time. You will only have to pick one of the domains/subdomains that you have inside the hosting account and to select which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can type in the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be all set. The protection shall be turned on immediately, so anyone that tries to access the newly protected folder shall have to type in the correct login details. In cases where several individuals have to be able to access the same content, you could make a separate username for each one.
