A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the correct login details are offered. This may be an entire Internet site or simply a single page which is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you shall see a browser pop-up in which you must input a username and also a password. If you type the right ones, you can continue surfing around the content without having to do anything else. If the login credentials aren't right, however, you'll see a message that you are not permitted to view the content. When this function is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is very practical if you wish to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

Password Protected Directories in Website Hosting

All of our website hosting feature a really useful tool that'll enable you to protect any folder inside your account from unauthorized access with only 2 mouse clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will only have to go to the Password Protection section, to select the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which should be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type the username and the password which should be used in order to access the content in question. The feature will be activated at once, so in case you attempt to open the folder/website, you will be prompted to type in the login credentials. You can create or remove many usernames for the same folder, if needed. When you check out the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be indicated by a little padlock icon.
