A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are provided. This can be an entire site or just a single page which is located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up where you must enter a username as well as a password. If you type the right ones, you'll be able to continue exploring the content without having to do anything additional. When the login credentials aren't correct, however, you shall see a message that you aren't allowed to look at the content. When this option is active, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The feature is very handy if you'd like 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 prior to it being ready.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

When you use any of our cloud hosting plans, you'll be able to create password-protected areas without difficulty even if you don't have any experience with such matters. We've incorporated an extremely easy-to-use point-and-click tool into the Hepsia CP, supplied with all accounts, so you'll be able to shield any folder within just seconds. You will have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder that must be secured (the main one or a subfolder), and then to type the username and password which will be used to access the folder in question at some point. Every protected folder will have a padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you will be able to see easily what content is secured and what is not. If needed, you could make a number of sets of login details for precisely the same folder.
