A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the right login details are provided. This could be an entire website or just one page that is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up in which you will need to type a username as well as a password. In case you type the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue surfing around the content with no need to do anything additional. In case the login credentials aren't right, however, you'll see a message that you aren't authorized to see the content. If this function is active, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is extremely handy if you'd like to restrict 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 Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to set up password protection for any content that you have in your semi-dedicated server account. We've added an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel where you shall be able to activate the feature with a number of mouse clicks and with no troubles, even if you're not quite tech-savvy. You will simply have to choose the hostname (domain or subdomain), the exact folder that must be protected (the primary folder or a subfolder) as well as the login name and password. The protection will take effect right away, so if you attempt to open the password-protected URL within your browser, you'll need to input the newly created login details before you proceed. Additionally, you will be able to give different usernames for the very same folder to a number of individuals, so you will not have to share the same login credentials with anybody. Any password-protected folder shall have a little padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you'll be able to recognize this type of folders with ease.
