A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the proper login credentials are offered. This can be an entire website or simply a single page which is located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up in which you will need to type in a username and a password. If you enter the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content with no need to do anything else. When the login details aren't right, however, you shall see information that you are not allowed to view the content. In case this function is active, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is extremely practical if you wish to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting
With the password protection tool supplied with each cloud hosting
plan which we offer, you will be able to protect any content that you have inside your account with simply a few clicks. As the tool is part of our revolutionary Hepsia CP, it features exactly the same simple interface and you'll not require any special skills to use it. Once you visit the Password Protection section, you will need to pick one of the domains or subdomains which you have within the account and then decide whether the protection should be turned on for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password that you'd like and you'll be ready. A tiny padlock icon in the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the very same way you will be able to include a number of usernames and passwords for the same folder if you would like several people to have their own login credentials.
