A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the right login credentials are provided. This could be a whole Internet site or just one page that's located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up where you will need to input a username and also a password. If you type in the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content without needing to do anything additional. In case the login credentials are not accurate, however, you'll see information that you aren't permitted to view the content. In case this function is activated, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is incredibly effective if you want to limit the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

We've incorporated an incredibly easy-to-use point-and-click tool into the Hepsia CP, provided with all accounts, so you will be able to shield any folder within merely seconds. You'll 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 enter the desired username and password which will be used to access the folder in question in the future. Every protected folder shall have padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you shall be able to see at a glance what content is protected and what's not.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to create password protection for any content that you have in your semi-dedicated server account. We have integrated an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel using which you will be able to switch on the feature with a few clicks and with no problems, even if you're not quite tech-savvy. You'll simply need to choose the hostname (domain or subdomain), the exact folder which has to be protected (the main folder or a subfolder) and the login name and password. The protection will take effect instantly, so if you make an attempt to open the password-protected URL inside your web browser, you'll have to type the newly created login credentials before you can proceed. Additionally, you'll be able to give different usernames for the same folder to a number of individuals, so you'll not have to share the same login credentials with everyone. Each password-protected folder will have a tiny padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you'll be able to recognize this kind of folders easily.
