Password Protected Directories
Discover how to set up a secure and user-only area in your website with password-protected directories.
A password-protected directory or area is a folder which could be accessed only when a username and a password are typed in, so no unauthorized people can look at its content. This function could be used for the main folder of a particular Internet site or only for a specific subfolder based on the needs you have. As an illustration, when you are developing a new website and you don't want people to see it before it's 100% ready, you have to prohibit the access to it as a whole, and if you need only some individuals to be able to access particular files, you can password-protect only a particular folder, while the remainder of the Internet site may be seen by anybody. Either way, a “403 Forbidden” error page will appear if the login details the visitor enters are not accurate. Even a direct link to a file shall not work so long as any folder above it is password-protected.

Since the tool is part of our revolutionary Hepsia Control Panel, it offers the same uncomplicated interface and you'll not require any special skills to use it. Once you check out the Password Protection section, you'll need to pick one of the domains or subdomains that you have within the account and then decide whether the protection should be activated for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then type in the username and the password that you want and you will be ready. A little padlock icon inside the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server
account with our company, you'll be able to shield any content that you've uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's part of, so you shall not have to input any code at any time. You will simply have to choose one of the domains/subdomains which you have in the web hosting account and to choose which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can type the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be good to go. The protection shall be enabled at once, so anybody who attempts to access the newly protected folder shall have to enter the right login information. If a number of individuals should be able to access the exact same content, you could make a separate username for each.
