A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the correct login details are offered. This may be an entire site or just one page that's in a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you shall see a browser pop-up in which you have to input a username and also a password. In case you input the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without the need to do anything more. In case the login credentials are not correct, however, you shall see a message that you aren't authorized to view the content. In case this option is active, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is quite handy if you need to restrict the access to some content or if you work on a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

Password Protected Directories in Website Hosting

If you use any of our website hosting packages, you will be able to set up password-protected areas easily even if you have no experience with this sort of matters. We've incorporated an extremely easy-to-use point-and-click tool into the Hepsia CP, offered with all accounts, so you'll be able to shield any folder within a matter of seconds. You'll only have to choose a domain or a subdomain and the exact folder that should be protected (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to input the desired username and password that'll be used to access the folder in question in the future. Each and every protected folder will have a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you shall be able to see easily what content is protected and what's not. If necessary, you can make several different sets of login credentials for the exact same folder.
