A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the correct login details are supplied. This may be a whole Internet site or just a single page that is situated in a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up where you must input a username as well as a password. In case you type the correct ones, you can continue browsing the content with no need to do anything more. If the login details are not accurate, however, you shall see a note that you aren't authorized to look at the content. If this feature is active, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is extremely effective if you want 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 prior to it being ready.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

All our Linux cloud packages feature a very convenient tool which will enable you to shield any folder in your account from unauthorized access with simply 2 mouse clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will simply have to navigate to the Password Protection section, to pick the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which should be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type the username and the password that have to be used to access the content in question. The feature will be turned on instantly, so in case you make an effort to open the folder/website, you'll be prompted to input the login info. You can set up or remove many usernames for the exact same folder, if needed. When you go to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be indicated by a tiny padlock icon.
