A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are provided. This could be a whole site or simply a single page which is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up where you will have to type in a username and also a password. In case you type the appropriate ones, you can continue surfing around the content without the need to do anything extra. If the login credentials aren't correct, however, you shall see information 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 though you may have a direct link. The feature is incredibly effective if you wish to limit the access to some content or if you are creating a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

Password Protected Directories in Website Hosting

With the password protection tool provided with each website hosting package that we offer, you shall be able to protect any content which you have within your account with only a few clicks. Since the tool is part of our innovative Hepsia Control Panel, it has the exact same simple interface and you'll not need any special skills to use it. Once you go to the Password Protection section, you'll have to select one of the domains or subdomains you have inside the account and then decide whether the protection should be switched on for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password that you'd like and you shall be ready. A small padlock symbol within the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the exact same way you'll be able to include a number of usernames and passwords for the same folder if you'd like several people to have their own login credentials.
