A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the correct login details are supplied. This can be an entire site or simply a single page that is located within a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you'll see a web browser pop-up in which you must type in a username and also a password. If you type in the right ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content without having to do anything more. If the login details aren't correct, however, you shall see information that you are not authorized to view the content. In case this option is activated, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is extremely useful if you need to prohibit the access to some content or if you are creating a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll be able to secure any content you have uploaded via our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's a part of, so you will not have to input any code at any time. You'll simply need to pick one of the domains/subdomains which you have in the hosting account and to choose which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then type the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be good to go. The protection will be switched on immediately, so anyone that attempts to access the freshly secured folder shall have to enter the right login details. In case various individuals must be able to access the same content, you could make a separate username for each one.
