A password-protected directory or area is a folder which can be accessed only when a username and a password are entered, so no unauthorized people can see its content. This function could be used for the main folder of a certain website or only for a certain subfolder in accordance with your requirements. For example, when you are developing a new Internet site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completely ready, you should prohibit the access to it as a whole, and if you need only some individuals to be able to access certain files, you may password-protect only a particular folder, while the rest of the Internet site can be seen by everyone. Either way, a “403 Forbidden” error page will appear if the login details the visitor inputs are not right. Even a direct link to a file won't work if any folder above it is password-protected.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Website Hosting

With the password protection tool that is included with each shared website hosting plan that we provide, you shall be able to shield any content that you have inside your account with only a few mouse clicks. As the tool is an element of our innovative Hepsia CP, it offers the same simple interface and you'll not require any special skills to use it. When you visit the Password Protection section, you will have to select one of the domains or subdomains which you have within the account and then decide whether the protection should be switched on for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password that you'd like and you shall be all set to go. A little padlock symbol in the File Manager section will tell you that a particular 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'd like several people to have their own login credentials.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to shield any content you have uploaded using our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it is a part of, so you'll not need to type in any code at any time. You'll simply have to pick one of the domains/subdomains which you have inside the website hosting account and to pick which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then input the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be good to go. The protection shall be activated straightaway, so anyone who tries to access the newly protected folder will have to enter the correct login details. When a number of individuals have to be able to access exactly the same content, you could set up a separate username for each.
