A password-protected directory or area is a folder which could be accessed when a username and a password are provided, so no unauthorized people may look at its content. This function can be used for the main folder of a certain website or just for a certain subfolder in accordance with your preferences. For instance, if you are developing a new Internet site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being 100% ready, you have to restrict the access to it entirely, and if you would like only some individuals to be able to access certain files, you could password-protect only a certain folder, while the other parts of the website may be seen by everyone. Either way, a “403 Forbidden” error page will appear in case the login details the visitor enters aren't right. Even a direct link to a file will not work given that any folder above it is password-protected.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

With the password protection tool that is included with each and every cloud hosting plan which we offer, you'll be able to protect any content which you have in your account with just a few mouse clicks. Due to the fact that the tool is an element of our innovative Hepsia CP, it offers the exact same uncomplicated interface and you shall not need any special skills to use it. As soon as you check out the Password Protection section, you will need to select one of the domains or subdomains that you have inside the account and then choose if the protection should be switched on for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password you want and you shall be set. A tiny padlock symbol inside 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 several 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 Hosting

You shall be able to set up password protection for any content that you have in your semi-dedicated server account. We have included an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel through which you shall be able to enable the function with a few clicks and without any troubles, even if you're not quite tech-savvy. You will only need to pick the hostname (domain or subdomain), the particular folder that has to be secured (the main 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 within your web browser, you will need to enter the newly created login details before you can proceed. Additionally, you will be able to give different usernames for the same folder to a number of people, so you will not need to share the same login details with everyone. Each password-protected folder shall have a compact padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you'll be able to recognize this type of folders easily.
