A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the proper login details are provided. This may be an entire Internet site or simply a single page which is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up in which you must type in a username and a password. If you enter the right ones, you'll be able to continue exploring the content without the need to do anything extra. When the login details aren't correct, however, you'll see a note that you are not permitted to see the content. When this feature is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is incredibly practical if you want to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

Password Protected Directories in Website Hosting

All of our Linux website hosting feature a very handy tool that'll allow you to shield any folder in your account from unauthorized access with just two mouse clicks. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll only have to visit the Password Protection section, to select the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that should be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to input the username and the password which have to be used so as to access the content in question. The function will be active at once, so in case you make an effort to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to input the login information. You can create or remove a number of usernames for the exact same folder, when necessary. If you navigate to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be indicated by a little padlock icon.
