A password-protected directory or area is a folder that could be accessed only when a username and a password are provided, so no unauthorized individuals could view its content. This feature may be used for the primary folder of a particular Internet site or just for a specific subfolder depending on your preferences. For example, if you are creating a new Internet site and you do not want people to see it before it's 100% ready, you have to prohibit the access to it altogether, while if you want only some people to be able to access specific files, you are able to password-protect only a particular folder, while the remaining portion of the website can be seen by anyone. Regardless, a “403 Forbidden” error page shall appear if the login details the visitor enters aren't correct. Even a direct link to a file shall not work if any folder above it is password-protected.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Website Hosting

With the password protection tool that comes with every cloud website hosting package which we offer, you will be able to protect any content that you have inside your account with just a few clicks. As the tool is a component of our innovative Hepsia CP, it has the exact same simple interface and you'll not require any special skills to use it. When you check out the Password Protection section, you will have to pick one of the domains or subdomains you have within the account and then choose if the protection should be turned on for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password that you'd like and you will be set. A little padlock symbol inside the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the same exact way you'll be able to include 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

It will take just a few mouse clicks to activate the password protection function for any folder that you have, in case you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated packages. We have an exceptionally handy tool, that offers a user-friendly point-and-click interface and which can be used by people with zero experience. It's part of the Hepsia Control Panel, which you will get to manage your new account and when you log in and go to the Password Protection section, you'll be able to choose the domain or subdomain that should be secured and then the particular folder - either the primary folder or any subfolder under it. You will also see 2 boxes where you shall have to enter the login name and the password that will be necessary to access the folder in question and you will be good to go. By following precisely the same steps, you can set up several different login credentials for the very same folder to give several individuals their own username/password. All protected folders shall have a small padlock sign in the File Manager section.
