A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the right login credentials are provided. This could be a whole Internet site or only a single page that is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you'll see a web browser pop-up in which you will need to type a username and also a password. In case you type in the right ones, you can continue surfing around the content without needing to do anything else. If the login details aren't right, however, you will see information that you aren't allowed to see the content. In case this option is active, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is incredibly useful if you need to restrict the access to some content or if you are developing an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting

All of our Linux shared packages come with a very handy tool that'll permit you to secure any folder in your account from unauthorized access with simply 2 mouse clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will just have to go to the Password Protection section, to select the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which should be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type in the username and the password that should be used in order to access the content in question. The function will be activated straightaway, so if you attempt to open the folder/website, you'll be prompted to type in the login details. You may set up or remove multiple usernames for the same folder, when necessary. When you go to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be marked with a tiny padlock icon.

You will not encounter any problems even if you have never had a website hosting account before, because you don't need any previous knowledge or coding skills to activate the feature. If you repeat the same very simple steps, you will be able to create many usernames for the same password-protected area, so a number of people will be able to access a particular folder with their own login credentials. You'll be able to see the secured folders very easily either in exactly the same section of the CP or inside the File Manager section where you shall recognize them by their compact padlock icons.
