A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the right login credentials are supplied. This may be a whole Internet site or simply a single page which is situated in a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up where you will have to type a username and also a password. If you enter the appropriate ones, you can continue surfing around the content without needing to do anything else. If the login credentials aren't accurate, however, you shall see information that you aren't allowed to look at the content. If this feature is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The option is incredibly effective if you want to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

You will only have to choose a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder that should be secured (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to type in the preferred username and password which will be used to access the folder in question when you need it. Each secured folder shall have padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see instantly what content is protected and what is not. If needed, you may create a number of sets of login details for the exact same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall be able to create password protection for any content which you have within your semi-dedicated server account. We have added an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which you will be able to switch on the feature with several mouse clicks and with no problems, even if you're not very tech-savvy. You will simply have to choose the hostname (domain or subdomain), the exact folder which needs to be secured (the primary folder or a subfolder) as well as the login name and password. The protection shall take effect immediately, so if you attempt to open the password-protected URL within your browser, you'll need to enter the newly created login details in order to proceed. Additionally, you'll be able to give different usernames for the very same folder to a number of people, so you will not need to share the same login details with everyone. Each password-protected folder shall have a small padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you'll be able to recognize such folders effortlessly.
