A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are supplied. This can be an entire Internet site or simply one page that is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up in which you have to type a username and a password. If you input the correct ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without having to do anything extra. If the login details aren't correct, however, you will see a note that you are not allowed to view the content. In case this option is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is extremely handy if you need to restrict the access to some content or if you are developing an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Web Hosting

All of our Linux cloud web hosting packages include a really convenient tool that will allow you to shield any folder inside your account from unauthorized access with only two mouse clicks. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will simply have to navigate to the Password Protection section, to select the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that has to be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type in the username and the password which have to be used to access the content in question. The function shall be turned on right away, so in case you attempt to open the folder/website, you will be prompted to enter the login credentials. You may create or remove multiple usernames for the exact same folder, when necessary. When you navigate to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be marked with a compact padlock icon.
