A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the correct login credentials are supplied. This could be an entire site or simply one page which is located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you shall see a browser pop-up where you must type in a username and a password. If you type in the right ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without the need to do anything more. In case the login details are not right, however, you will see information that you are not permitted to look at the content. When this function is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is quite effective if you need to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.

Password Protected Directories in Web Hosting

With the password protection tool that comes with each and every web hosting package deal which we offer, you will be able to protect any content that you have inside your account with merely a few mouse clicks. As the tool is a component of our innovative Hepsia CP, it features the same uncomplicated interface and you will not require any special skills to use it. When you go to the Password Protection section, you will have to pick one of the domains or subdomains which you have within the account and then decide whether the protection should be switched on for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then type in the username and the password that you would like and you will be all set. A tiny padlock symbol within the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the exact same way you'll be able to add many usernames and passwords for the same folder if you'd like several people to have their own login credentials.
