A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the right login details are provided. This could be an entire Internet site or simply a single page which is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you'll see a web browser pop-up where you have to type in a username and also a password. In case you type in the correct ones, you will be able to continue surfing around the content with no need to do anything more. If the login details aren't right, however, you will see a message that you aren't permitted to look at the content. In case this function is activated, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is incredibly useful if you wish to limit the access to some content or if you work on a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
Password Protected Directories in Website Hosting
All of our website hosting include a very convenient tool that'll allow you to secure any folder within your account from unauthorized access with simply 2 mouse clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia web hosting CP, you'll only have to go to the Password Protection section, to choose the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that should 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 function will be activated immediately, so in case you make an effort to open the folder/website, you'll be prompted to input the login credentials. You can set up or remove a number of usernames for the very same folder, when necessary. If you check out the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be marked with a small padlock icon.

We have added an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel via which you shall be able to enable the function with a few mouse clicks and with no difficulties, even if you are not very tech-savvy. You will only need to pick the hostname (domain or subdomain), the particular folder that has to be secured (the primary folder or a subfolder) plus the login name and password. The protection shall take effect instantaneously, so if you make an attempt to open the password-protected URL within your browser, you will need to type in the newly created login details in order to proceed. Additionally, you will be able to give different usernames for the exact same folder to a number of people, so you will not need to share the same login credentials with anybody. Each password-protected folder will have a small padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you will be able to recognize such folders in no time.
