A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are offered. This could be an entire site or simply a single page that's located within a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up in which you will have to type in a username and also a password. In case you enter the correct ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content without having to do anything more. If the login details are not right, however, you'll see information that you are not allowed to look at the content. In case this option is active, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is incredibly effective if you want to restrict the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.

You will not need to do anything complex - you will need to choose a domain/subdomain, to choose which folder under it should be protected, and then to input the login name and password which will be used to access that folder. In case a number of individuals need their own login credentials, there will not be a problem to make a variety of different usernames with access to the same exact folder. All secured folders shall appear with a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you shall always know where this option is enabled. If you'd like to deactivate the protection feature for any folder, you can deactivate it from the very same section of the CP in which you have enabled it.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to secure any content that you've uploaded using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it's a part of, so you'll not have to write any code at any time. You'll simply need 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 can then type in the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be all set. The protection will be activated at once, so anybody who attempts to access the freshly secured folder shall have to input the right login details. When various individuals must be able to open exactly the same content, you could make a separate username for each of them.
