A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the correct login credentials are provided. This can be a whole site or simply one page which is located within a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up where you will need to input a username and also a password. In case you type the right ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content with no need to do anything additional. When the login credentials aren't right, however, you shall see information that you aren't allowed to view the content. When this feature is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is incredibly practical if you wish to restrict the access to some content or if you are developing a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
Password Protected Directories in Hosting
All our hosting services feature an incredibly handy tool that'll permit you to secure any folder inside your account from unauthorized access with only 2 clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting CP, you'll only have to visit the Password Protection section, to pick the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that needs to be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type the username and the password which should be used in order to access the content in question. The feature will be active straightaway, so if you try to open the folder/website, you'll be prompted to type in the login credentials. You could create or remove multiple usernames for the very same folder, if required. If you go to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be shown with a little padlock icon.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to shield any content which you have uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it's a part of, so you will not need to write any code at any time. You'll only have to select one of the domains/subdomains you have in 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 type in the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be ready. The protection shall be enabled straightaway, so anyone that tries to access the newly secured folder will have to enter the right login details. In case various individuals should be able to access the same content, you could make a separate username for each one.
