A password-protected directory or area is a folder which can be accessed only if a username and a password are typed in, so no unauthorized people can see its content. This option may be used for the primary folder of a certain website or just for a certain subfolder in accordance with the needs you have. For example, if you are building a new website and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completely ready, you have to prohibit the access to it altogether, while if you want only some people to be able to access specific files, you could password-protect only a certain folder, while the remaining portion of the Internet site may be seen by everybody. Anyway, a “403 Forbidden” error page will appear if the login details the visitor inputs are not right. Even a direct link to a file won't work as long as any folder above it is password-protected.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

When you use any of our cloud hosting solutions, you shall be able to create password-protected areas easily even if you have no experience with this sort of matters. We have incorporated a very easy-to-use point-and-click tool within the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all accounts, so you'll be able to protect any folder within just a few seconds. You will only have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder that has to be protected (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to type the desired username and password that'll be used to access the folder in question when you need it. Any protected folder will have a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you will be able to see instantly what content is protected and what is not. If required, you could make a number of sets of login details for the exact same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall be able to secure any content you have uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it's a part of, so you'll not have to write any code at any time. You will only have to choose one of the domains/subdomains that you have inside the website hosting account and to pick which folder must be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can type the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be ready. The protection will be switched on at once, so anyone who tries to access the recently secured folder shall have to input the right login details. In cases where several people have to be able to access exactly the same content, you can create a separate username for each one.
