A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the proper login details are supplied. This could be an entire site or just a single page that's located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up in which you will need to input a username and a password. If you enter the right ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content with no need to do anything additional. If the login details aren't accurate, however, you will see a note that you are not allowed to see the content. When this function is active, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The option is extremely effective if you need to restrict 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 is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

With the password protection tool supplied with every cloud hosting plan which we offer, you'll be able to shield any content that you have inside your account with only a few clicks. Because the tool is a component of our revolutionary Hepsia CP, it offers exactly the same simple interface and you'll not need any special skills to use it. Once you navigate to the Password Protection section, you'll have to pick one of the domains or subdomains you have inside the account and then choose if the protection should be active for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then enter the username and the password that you would like and you will be all set. A tiny padlock symbol within the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the exact same way you'll be able to include numerous usernames and passwords for the same folder if you would like several people to have their own login credentials.
