A password-protected directory or area is a folder that may be accessed only if a username and a password are typed in, so no unauthorized people can view its content. This option can be used for the primary folder of a certain site or exclusively for a certain subfolder in accordance with your requirements. For example, if you are developing a new website and you do not want people to see it before it's ready, you may want to prohibit the access to it completely, while if you would like only some people to be able to access specific files, you are able to password-protect only a specific folder, while the remainder of the website can be seen by anyone. In any case, a “403 Forbidden” error page will appear when the login details the visitor types in aren't accurate. Even a direct link to a file won't work given that any folder above it is password-protected.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

Creating a password-protected area will take no more than a couple of mouse clicks and a few seconds when you host your sites in a cloud hosting account with our company. You won't need to do anything complicated - you will need to choose a domain/subdomain, to pick which folder under it has to be protected, and then to type in the login name and password that will be used to access that folder. If a number of individuals require their own login credentials, there will not be a problem to set up several different usernames with access to the same folder. All secured folders will appear with a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you will always know where this feature is enabled. If you want to turn off the protection feature for any folder, you can disable it from the very same section of the CP in which you have enabled it.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to shield any content you have uploaded using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is a part of, so you shall not need to enter any code at any time. You'll simply have to select one of the domains/subdomains you have in the website hosting account and to choose which folder must be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You can then enter the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be all set. The protection shall be turned on right away, so anybody who attempts to access the newly secured folder shall have to input the accurate login information. In cases where various people have to be able to access precisely the same content, you can create a separate username for each of them.
