A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the right login credentials are provided. This can be a whole Internet site or only a single page which is in a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you'll see a web browser pop-up in which you must input a username as well as a password. If you input the appropriate ones, you can continue browsing the content without having to do anything more. In case the login details are not correct, however, you shall see information that you are not allowed to view the content. In case this function is active, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is incredibly handy if you need 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.

Password Protected Directories in Web Hosting

All our Linux web hosting include an incredibly useful tool that'll permit you to secure any folder within your account from unauthorized access with only 2 mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia web hosting CP, you'll simply have to navigate to the Password Protection section, to choose the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which has to be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to enter the username and the password which must be used in order to access the content in question. The feature will be turned on at once, so in case you attempt to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to type in the login information. You may set up or remove multiple usernames for the very same folder, if necessary. When you navigate to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be shown with a compact padlock icon.

Securing any folder with a password shall be quite simple if you host your Internet sites within a semi-dedicated server account with us.

You won't experience any problems even if you have not had a hosting account before, considering that you do not need any previous knowledge or programming skills to enable the feature. If you repeat the same basic steps, you shall be able to create various usernames for the exact same password-protected area, so lots of people shall be able to access a particular folder with their own login credentials. You shall be able to see the secured folders easily either in the very same section of the Control Panel or in the File Manager section where you will detect them by their small padlock icons.
