A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the right login credentials are provided. This may be an entire Internet site or only one page that is situated in a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up where you will need to type a username and a password. In case you input the correct ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content without the need to do anything additional. In case the login details aren't correct, however, you shall see a note that you aren't permitted to view the content. If this option is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is quite handy if you wish to restrict the access to some content or if you are developing a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Web Hosting

When you use any of our cloud web hosting products, you shall be able to make password-protected areas with ease even if you have zero experience with such matters. We have integrated a really easy-to-use point-and-click tool in the Hepsia CP, supplied with all accounts, so you will be able to secure any folder within just a few seconds. You will simply have to select a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder which must be secured (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to input the desired username and password which will be used to access the folder in question later on. Each and every secured folder will have a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you will be able to see easily what content is secured and what's not. If necessary, you can create a number of sets of login credentials for exactly the same folder.
