A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login details are supplied. This can be an entire Internet site or just a single page which is in a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up in which you will have to enter a username as well as a password. If you type the correct ones, you will be able to continue surfing around the content without needing to do anything additional. If the login credentials are not right, however, you shall see a message that you are not allowed to look at the content. When this option is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is incredibly practical if you wish to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

We have incorporated a very easy-to-use point-and-click tool within the Hepsia CP, supplied with all accounts, so you will be able to protect any folder within a matter of seconds. You will only have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the particular folder which must be secured (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to enter the preferred username and password that'll be used to access the folder in question later on. Every secured folder shall have padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you will be able to see instantly what content is secured and what's not. When necessary, you can create several different sets of login details for precisely the same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to set up password protection for any content you have within your semi-dedicated server account. We have added an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel via which you shall be able to switch on the feature with a few clicks and without any complications, even if you are not quite tech-savvy. You'll only need to choose the hostname (domain or subdomain), the specific folder which should be protected (the primary folder or a subfolder) plus the login name and password. The protection shall take effect right away, so if you make an attempt to open the password-protected URL inside your web browser, you will have to type the newly created login details in order to proceed. You will also be able to give different usernames for the same folder to a number of individuals, so you will not need to share the same login credentials with everyone. Any password-protected folder will have a small padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you'll be able to recognize this kind of folders easily.
