A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are supplied. This can be a whole site or only a single page which is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up where you have to type a username and also a password. If you input the right ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content without needing to do anything additional. If the login details aren't correct, however, you will see a note that you are not permitted to look at the content. If this function is activated, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is very useful if you wish to restrict 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.

All of our Linux shared hosting feature an incredibly useful tool that will enable you to shield any folder in your account from unauthorized access with simply 2 clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting CP, you'll only have to visit the Password Protection section, to select the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that has to be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type the username and the password which should be used to access the content in question. The feature shall be active instantly, so in case you make an effort to open the folder/website, you will be prompted to type in the login information. You could create or remove many usernames for the very same folder, if required. If you go to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be indicated by a tiny padlock icon.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to create password protection for any content which you have in your semi-dedicated server account. We have added an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel using which you will be able to switch on the function with a few clicks and with no troubles, even if you are not really tech-savvy. You'll simply need to pick the hostname (domain or subdomain), the particular folder which must be secured (the primary folder or a subfolder) as well as the login name and password. The protection shall take effect instantly, so if you attempt to open the password-protected URL in your Internet browser, you will have to input the newly created login details before you proceed. You will also be able to give different usernames for the same folder to a number of people, so you'll not have to share the same login details with anybody. Each password-protected folder will have a little padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you shall be able to recognize this type of folders in no time.
