A password-protected directory or area is a folder which can be accessed only if a username and a password are provided, so no unauthorized people could observe its content. This feature could be used for the primary folder of a given website or exclusively for a particular subfolder based upon your requirements. For instance, when you are developing a new website and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completely ready, you should limit the access to it entirely, and if you would like only some people to be able to access specific files, you are able to password-protect only a certain folder, while the rest of the website can be seen by everyone. In either case, a “403 Forbidden” error page will appear in case the login details the visitor inputs aren't right. Even a direct link to a file won't work so long as any folder above it is password-protected.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Website Hosting

With the password protection tool provided with every single shared website hosting plan that we provide, you will be able to secure any content that you have in your account with merely a few mouse clicks. Since the tool is a component of our ground breaking Hepsia CP, it features the exact same uncomplicated interface and you shall not require any special skills to use it. When you check out the Password Protection section, you'll need to choose one of the domains or subdomains which you have inside the account and then choose whether the protection should be turned on for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password you want and you'll be all set to go. A little padlock icon in the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the exact same way you shall be able to include numerous 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

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to protect any content that you've uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is part of, so you will not have to type in any code at any time. You will simply have to pick one of the domains/subdomains you have inside the hosting account and to pick which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can enter the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be good to go. The protection will be enabled instantly, so anybody who tries to access the freshly secured folder shall have to input the correct login info. In case a number of individuals have to be able to open the exact same content, you can create a separate username for each.
