A password-protected directory or area is a folder which could be accessed when a username and a password are provided, so no unauthorized individuals could observe its content. This option may be used for the primary folder of a specific website or just for a specific subfolder depending on your requirements. As an illustration, when you are building a new site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completely ready, you have to limit the access to it altogether, and if you would like only some individuals to be able to access specific files, you'll be able to password-protect only a certain folder, while the rest of the Internet site can be seen by everybody. In either case, a “403 Forbidden” error page will appear when the login details the visitor enters are not correct. Even a direct link to a file shall not work given that any folder above it is password-protected.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

With the password protection tool that is included with each and every cloud hosting plan which we offer, you shall be able to secure any content which you have within your account with merely a few mouse clicks. Because the tool is an element of our innovative Hepsia CP, it features the exact same uncomplicated interface and you will not need any special skills to use it. Once you go to the Password Protection section, you'll have to pick one of the domains or subdomains you have inside the account and then decide whether the protection should be turned on for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then type in the username and the password that you'd like and you will be all set to go. A little padlock icon in the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the same way you'll be able to add a number of usernames and passwords for the same folder if you want 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'll be able to secure any content which you have uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is part of, so you shall not need to input any code at any time. You'll simply need to pick one of the domains/subdomains that you have inside the web hosting account and to determine which folder must be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. After that you can type in the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be all set. The protection will be switched on straightaway, so anyone that attempts to access the recently protected folder will have to input the correct login details. In cases where several people must be able to access the exact same content, you could make a separate username for each of them.
