A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the proper login credentials are offered. This can be a whole site or only a single page which is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up in which you will have to input a username and also a password. If you type in the right ones, you can continue browsing the content without needing to do anything additional. If the login credentials aren't right, however, you will see a note that you aren't permitted to look at the content. In case this function is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is very practical if you'd like to limit 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 Cloud Hosting

All our cloud hosting plans feature an exceptionally convenient tool that will allow you to shield any folder inside your account from unauthorized access with only 2 mouse clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll only have to visit the Password Protection section, to pick the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that has to be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to enter the username and the password that have to be used to access the content in question. The feature will be active right away, so in case you make an effort to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to enter the login info. You could set up or remove multiple usernames for the very same folder, if required. When you check out the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be indicated by a little padlock icon.
