A password-protected directory or area is a folder that can be accessed only when a username and a password are entered, so no unauthorized people may view its content. This feature could be used for the main folder of a certain site or just for a particular subfolder in accordance with your needs. As an example, if you are developing a new website and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completely ready, you should restrict the access to it as a whole, while if you need only some people to be able to access particular files, you'll be able to password-protect only a certain folder, while the remaining portion of the website could be seen by everyone. In either case, a “403 Forbidden” error page shall appear in the event that the login details the visitor enters aren't accurate. Even a direct link to a file shall not work if any folder above it is password-protected.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

With the password protection tool that is included with each cloud hosting package deal which we provide, you shall be able to protect any content which you have inside your account with just a few clicks. As the tool is a component of our revolutionary Hepsia CP, it provides exactly the same simple interface and you will not need any special skills to use it. As soon as you check out the Password Protection section, you'll need to select one of the domains or subdomains that you have in the account and then decide whether the protection should be turned on for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type in the username and the password that you want and you will be set. A little padlock icon in the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the exact same way you will be able to include a number of usernames and passwords for the same folder if you'd like several people to have their own login credentials.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to shield any content which you have uploaded via our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it is a part of, so you'll not have to enter any code at any time. You will simply need to choose one of the domains/subdomains you have in the web hosting account and to pick which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You can then type the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be all set. The protection will be activated immediately, so anyone that tries to access the freshly protected folder will have to input the accurate login details. In cases where various people have to be able to access the exact same content, you can create a separate username for each of them.
