A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the correct login details are offered. This may be a whole Internet site or simply one page which is located in a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up in which you will have to input a username and a password. If you type in the right ones, you can continue exploring the content without needing to do anything else. If the login credentials are not correct, however, you shall see a note that you aren't authorized to look at the content. When this option is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is extremely practical if you wish to limit the access to some content or if you are creating an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

When you use any of our cloud hosting packages, you can create password-protected areas with ease even if you don't have any experience with such matters. We've integrated an extremely easy-to-use point-and-click tool within the Hepsia Control Panel, offered with all accounts, so you'll be able to shield any folder within a matter of seconds. You will simply have to select a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder that must be protected (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to type in the desired username and password which will be used to access the folder in question in the future. Each secured folder will have a padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you shall be able to see immediately what content is protected and what is not. When necessary, you could make a number of sets of login credentials for precisely the same folder.
