A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the proper login details are offered. This may be an entire site or simply a single page that's located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you'll see a web browser pop-up in which you must type in a username as well as a password. If you type the correct ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content with no need to do anything more. In case the login credentials are not correct, however, you'll see information that you aren't permitted to view the content. In case this feature is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is very useful if you wish to limit 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 Website Hosting

With the password protection tool supplied with every single website hosting package which we provide, you'll be able to secure any content that you have inside your account with only a few clicks. Since the tool is a component of our ground breaking Hepsia Control Panel, it provides the same uncomplicated interface and you'll not require any special skills to use it. When you go to the Password Protection section, you'll need to choose one of the domains or subdomains that you have in the account and then decide whether the protection should be switched on for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type in the username and the password that you'd like and you'll be ready. A little padlock icon in the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the very same way you'll be able to include several usernames and passwords for the same folder if you'd like several people to have their own login credentials.
