A password-protected directory or area is a folder which could be accessed only if a username and a password are entered, so no unauthorized individuals can observe its content. This option could be used for the primary folder of a particular Internet site or exclusively for a certain subfolder based upon your needs. For example, when you are developing a new website and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completely ready, you have to prohibit the access to it completely, and if you need only some individuals to be able to access specific files, you are able to password-protect only a specific folder, while the other parts of the Internet site can be seen by everyone. Either way, a “403 Forbidden” error page will appear in the event that the login details the visitor types in aren't right. Even a direct link to a file will not work so long as any folder above it is password-protected.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

With the password protection tool that comes with each cloud hosting package deal that we offer, you will be able to protect any content which you have inside your account with merely a few mouse clicks. As the tool is an element of our revolutionary Hepsia Control Panel, it offers the same uncomplicated interface and you will not require any special skills to use it. When you visit the Password Protection section, you will have to choose one of the domains or subdomains which you have inside the account and then decide whether the protection should be turned on for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password that you would like and you shall be all set. A little padlock icon inside the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the very same way you will be able to include multiple 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 us, you'll be able to shield any content you have uploaded via our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's part of, so you will not need to write any code at any time. You'll only have to pick one of the domains/subdomains which you have in the website hosting account and to pick which folder must be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then type the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be good to go. The protection shall be turned on immediately, so anyone that attempts to access the recently protected folder will have to enter the correct login information. In case various individuals should be able to access precisely the same content, you could set up a separate username for each of them.
