A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the right login credentials are supplied. This may be an entire Internet site or simply a single page that's situated in a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up in which you must enter a username and a password. If you type in the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content without the need to do anything additional. When the login details aren't right, however, you shall see a note that you are not permitted to view the content. If this function is active, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is incredibly practical if you'd like to limit the access to some content or if you are creating a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Web Hosting

When you use any of our shared web hosting plans, you will be able to make password-protected areas without difficulty even if you don't have any experience with this sort of matters. We've incorporated an incredibly easy-to-use point-and-click tool into the Hepsia CP, supplied with all accounts, so you will be able to protect any folder within a matter of seconds. You will simply have to select a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder that has to be secured (the main one or a subfolder), and then to input the username and password that will be used to access the folder in question later on. Any secured folder will have a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you will be able to see immediately what content is secured and what is not. If necessary, you can make a number of different sets of login credentials for the same folder.
