A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are provided. This may be a whole website or simply one page that's located in a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you shall see a browser pop-up in which you will need to type a username and also a password. In case you type the right ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content with no need to do anything additional. In case the login details are not accurate, however, you shall see information that you aren't authorized to look at the content. When this feature is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is incredibly handy if you want to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

With the password protection tool provided with each cloud hosting package which we provide, you shall be able to protect any content which you have in your account with only a few mouse clicks. Since the tool is part of our innovative Hepsia CP, it features the same simple interface and you will not need any special skills to use it. When you navigate to the Password Protection section, you'll need to choose one of the domains or subdomains you have in the account and then decide if the protection should be activated for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password that you want and you'll be set. A little padlock icon in the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the exact same way you'll be able to add numerous usernames and passwords for the same folder if you would like several people to have their own login credentials.
