Password Protected Directories
Understand more about password-protected directories and just what they bring to your website.
A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are offered. This could be an entire website or just a single page that's located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you shall see a browser pop-up in which you will need to type a username and a password. In case you type in the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue surfing around the content without the need to do anything else. If the login credentials are not accurate, however, you will see a message that you aren't allowed to view the content. When this function is activated, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The feature 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.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Web Hosting
All our cloud web hosting
feature an incredibly useful tool that will permit you to protect any folder within your account from unauthorized access with just two mouse clicks. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia web hosting CP, you will only have to visit the Password Protection section, to select the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which needs to be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to input the username and the password which have to be used in order to access the content in question. The feature shall be turned on instantly, so in case you try to open the folder/website, you'll be prompted to type in the login information. You can set up or remove a number of usernames for the exact same folder, if needed. When you navigate to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be indicated by a tiny padlock icon.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server
account with our company, you shall be able to secure any content that you've uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is part of, so you shall not have to write any code at any time. You will only need to pick one of the domains/subdomains which you have in the hosting account and to determine which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You can then enter the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be ready. The protection shall be enabled right away, so anybody who tries to access the recently secured folder will have to enter the correct login details. If a number of people should be able to open the exact same content, you could set up a separate username for each of them.
