A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the right login credentials are offered. This can be a whole Internet site or simply one page which is in a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up where you will need to type a username and a password. In case you enter the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue exploring the content without needing to do anything additional. When the login details are not correct, however, you'll see a note that you are not authorized to see the content. In case this function is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is quite handy if you wish to prohibit the access to some content or if you are creating a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting

When you navigate to the Password Protection section, you'll have to pick one of the domains or subdomains which you have within the account and then choose whether the protection should be switched on for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password that you'd like and you shall be all set. A small padlock symbol in the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the very same way you'll be able to include several usernames and passwords for the same folder if you want several people to have their own login credentials.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to set up password protection for any content which you have inside your semi-dedicated server account. We have added an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel through which you will be able to enable the feature with a number of clicks and with no problems, even if you're not quite tech-savvy. You will only need to pick the hostname (domain or subdomain), the specific folder which must be secured (the primary folder or a subfolder) plus the login name and password. The protection will take effect right away, so if you make an effort to open the password-protected URL within your Internet browser, you will have to type the newly created login credentials in order to proceed. Additionally, you will be able to give different usernames for the very same folder to a number of people, so you'll not need to share the same login details with everybody. Any password-protected folder shall have a tiny padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you'll be able to recognize this sort of folders easily.
