A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the right login details are supplied. This may be a whole Internet site or only one page which is situated in a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up where you will have to type a username and a password. If you type in the right ones, you will be able to continue surfing around the content without the need to do anything more. When the login details aren't correct, however, you shall see a note that you are not authorized to look at the content. If this feature is active, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is incredibly useful if you wish to limit the access to some content or if you are developing a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

When you use any of our cloud hosting plans, you can set up password-protected areas without difficulty even if you don't have any experience with this kind of matters. We've incorporated a really easy-to-use point-and-click tool in the Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with all accounts, so you shall be able to protect any folder within merely seconds. You will simply have to select a domain or a subdomain and the particular folder that should be secured (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to enter the desired username and password which will be used to access the folder in question later on. Each and every secured folder shall have padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see instantly what content is secured and what's not. When necessary, you could make several different sets of login details for the exact same folder.
