A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the correct login credentials are supplied. This can be a whole website or only one page that is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up where you have to enter a username as well as a password. If you type the right ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content without having to do anything else. If the login details aren't accurate, however, you will see a message that you are not allowed to view the content. If this function is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is quite practical if you wish to prohibit the access to some content or if you are creating a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Hosting

All our Linux hosting feature a really useful tool which will allow you to secure any folder in your account from unauthorized access with simply two mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting CP, you will just have to visit the Password Protection section, to select the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that has to be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type the username and the password that must be used in order to access the content in question. The feature will be turned on at once, so in case you attempt to open the folder/website, you'll be prompted to input the login details. You could set up or remove multiple usernames for the very same folder, when necessary. If you check out the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be shown with a little padlock icon.

You will only need to select one of the domains/subdomains you have inside the hosting account and to pick which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. After that you can type in the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be ready. The protection shall be turned on instantly, so anyone that tries to access the newly protected folder shall have to enter the correct login info. In case a number of individuals should be able to open the exact same content, you could make a separate username for each.
