A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the proper login credentials are offered. This can be an entire Internet site or simply a single page which is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up in which you have to input a username as well as a password. In case you type the appropriate ones, you can continue exploring the content without needing to do anything else. When the login details are not correct, however, you'll see information that you are not authorized to look at the content. If this feature is activated, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is extremely practical if you need to restrict the access to some content or if you are creating a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Website Hosting
When you use any of our cloud website hosting packages, you can make password-protected areas without difficulty even if you don't have any experience with this kind of matters. We've included an incredibly easy-to-use point-and-click tool into the Hepsia CP, supplied with all accounts, so you'll be able to protect any folder within just a few seconds. You will have to choose a domain or a subdomain and the particular folder which has to be protected (the main 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 instantly what content is protected and what is not. If necessary, you can create a number of sets of login credentials for precisely the same folder.
