A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the right login details are provided. This can be a whole site or just a single page that is located within a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up where you must type in a username and also a password. In case you type the correct ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without the need to do anything else. In case the login credentials aren't correct, however, you shall see a note that you are not allowed to view the content. In case this function is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is quite practical if you wish to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

Password Protected Directories in Web Hosting

If you use any of our web hosting packages, you can set up password-protected areas without difficulty even if you have zero experience with such matters. We have included a really easy-to-use point-and-click tool within the Hepsia CP, supplied with all accounts, so you shall be able to protect any folder within a matter of seconds. You'll only have to select a domain or a subdomain and the particular folder which has to be secured (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to type the username and password that will be used to access the folder in question later on. Each secured folder shall have padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you shall be able to see immediately what content is secured and what is not. If required, you may create a number of different sets of login details for precisely the same folder.
