A password-protected directory or area is a folder that may be accessed when a username and a password are entered, so no unauthorized individuals can view its content. This feature may 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 creating a new Internet site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being 100% ready, you might want to limit the access to it altogether, while if you need only some people to be able to access particular files, you may password-protect only a certain folder, while the remaining portion of the website may be seen by anyone. Either way, a “403 Forbidden” error page will appear in case the login details the visitor inputs are not correct. Even a direct link to a file shall not work if any folder above it is password-protected.

Password Protected Directories in Website Hosting

When you use any of our website hosting packages, you'll be able to make password-protected areas without difficulty even if you don't have any experience with such matters. We've incorporated an incredibly easy-to-use point-and-click tool into the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all accounts, so you shall be able to protect any folder within a matter of seconds. You will only have to choose a domain or a subdomain and the particular folder that should be protected (the main one or a subfolder), and then to type the desired username and password which will be used to access the folder in question in the future. Each and every protected folder will have a padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see instantly what content is secured and what is not. If necessary, you can create several different sets of login credentials for the same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Securing any folder with a password will be easy if you host your websites within a semi-dedicated server account with our company. A user-friendly tool, which is built into the Hepsia CP, will permit you to choose the particular folder you would like to protect with a couple of mouse clicks and all you will need to enter shall be the username and the password that will be used to access it later on. You will not experience any troubles even if you have not had a web hosting account before, because you do not need any previous knowledge or coding skills to enable the function. If you repeat the same basic steps, you shall be able to create different usernames for the exact same password-protected area, so lots of people shall be able to access a particular folder with their own login details. You will be able to see the secured folders easily either in precisely the same section of the CP or inside the File Manager section where you'll identify them by their little padlock icons.
