A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are provided. This could be an entire site or only one page that is located within a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up where you will need to enter a username and also a password. In case you type in the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content without needing to do anything else. If the login credentials are not correct, however, you shall see a message that you aren't permitted to view the content. When this option is active, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is extremely effective if you need to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

When you use any of our cloud hosting products, you can make password-protected areas easily even if you don't have any experience with this type of matters. We've integrated an extremely easy-to-use point-and-click tool in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all accounts, so you will 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 must be protected (the main one or a subfolder), and then to type in the username and password that will be used to access the folder in question when you need it. Every protected folder will have a padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see at a glance what content is secured and what is not. If necessary, you could make several different sets of login details for exactly the same folder.
