A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the correct login details are provided. This can be an entire Internet site or simply one page which is located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up where you must type a username as well as a password. In case you enter the correct ones, you can continue browsing the content with no need to do anything else. When the login details aren't correct, however, you shall see information that you aren't permitted to look at the content. When this function is activated, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The feature is extremely effective if you need to restrict the access to some content or if you are creating 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
When you use any of our website hosting products, you'll be able to create password-protected areas with ease even if you have zero experience with this kind of matters. We have integrated a really easy-to-use point-and-click tool in the Hepsia CP, provided with all accounts, so you will be able to shield any folder within just seconds. You will have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the exact folder which has to be secured (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to enter the desired username and password that'll be used to access the folder in question later on. Every protected folder shall have padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see at a glance what content is secured and what is not. If necessary, you may create a number of different sets of login credentials for the exact same folder.
