A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the right login details are offered. This may be an entire site or simply one page which is situated in a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you will see a browser pop-up in which you have to type a username and also a password. In case you enter the appropriate ones, you can continue surfing around the content without the need to do anything extra. When the login credentials aren't right, however, you will see a message that you are not allowed to see the content. When this option is activated, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is very practical if you wish to restrict the access to some content or if you work on an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

The function will be activated immediately, so in case you make an effort to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to enter the login info.

When you navigate to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be shown with a little padlock icon.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to create password protection for any content you have within your semi-dedicated server account. We've added an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you will be able to activate the function with a few clicks and without any difficulties, even if you're not quite tech-savvy. You will only need to choose the hostname (domain or subdomain), the specific folder that has to be protected (the main folder or a subfolder) and the login name and password. The protection shall take effect immediately, so if you make an attempt to open the password-protected URL in your Internet browser, you'll have to enter the newly created login details before you proceed. Additionally, you'll be able to give different usernames for the very same folder to a number of people, so you'll not need to share the same login details with everybody. Each password-protected folder shall have a small padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you will be able to recognize this type of folders in no time.
