A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login details are provided. This may be a whole Internet site or only one page that's located in a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up where you must type a username and also a password. In case you enter the right ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content without having to do anything additional. In case the login credentials aren't right, however, you shall see a message that you are not allowed to view the content. In case this feature is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The option is very practical if you need to restrict 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's ready.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Web Hosting

All our cloud web hosting plans include an exceptionally useful tool that will permit you to secure any folder inside your account from unauthorized access with just two clicks. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia web hosting CP, you will only have to go to the Password Protection section, to choose the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that needs to be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type in the username and the password that must be used so as to access the content in question. The feature shall be activated instantly, so if you attempt to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to type in the login credentials. You could set up or remove multiple usernames for the same folder, if required. If you check out the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be marked with a tiny padlock icon.
