A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the right login credentials are provided. This can be an entire website or simply one page which is located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up where you have to type in a username and also a password. If you enter the appropriate ones, you can continue browsing the content with no need to do anything else. If the login credentials are not correct, however, you will see a note that you are not authorized to view the content. In case this option is active, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is incredibly handy if you'd like to restrict the access to some content or if you are creating an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to shield any content which you have uploaded using our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's a part of, so you'll not need to input any code at any time. You'll only have to pick one of the domains/subdomains which you have inside the website hosting account and to select which folder must be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You can then input the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be good to go. The protection shall be activated right away, so anyone that tries to access the newly protected folder will have to type in the accurate login details. In case various individuals should be able to access precisely the same content, you can create a separate username for each one.
