A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the proper login details are provided. This can be an entire Internet site or simply a single page that is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up where you must enter a username and also a password. In case you input the right ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content without having to do anything else. In case the login credentials are not right, however, you'll see information that you are not permitted to see the content. In case this feature is activated, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is quite practical if you wish to limit the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Website Hosting

If you use any of our shared website hosting packages, you shall be able to create password-protected areas easily even if you have no experience with this sort of matters. We have integrated an extremely easy-to-use point-and-click tool within the Hepsia CP, supplied with all accounts, so you shall be able to protect any folder within just seconds. You will only have to select a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder that should be secured (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to input the preferred username and password which will be used to access the folder in question when you need it. Every protected folder will have a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you will be able to see instantly what content is secured and what's not. If needed, you can make a number of sets of login credentials for precisely the same folder.
