A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the proper login details are supplied. This could be a whole Internet site or simply one page that's located in a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you will see a browser pop-up in which you must input a username as well as a password. In case you input the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content without having to do anything more. If the login credentials are not correct, however, you will see a message that you are not authorized to see the content. When this function is active, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is incredibly effective if you want to limit the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

All our cloud hosting plans include an exceptionally convenient tool which will enable you to secure any folder in your account from unauthorized access with simply 2 mouse clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia web hosting CP, you'll simply have to navigate to the Password Protection section, to choose the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which should be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type the username and the password that should be used so as to access the content in question. The function shall be turned on immediately, so if you try to open the folder/website, you'll be prompted to enter the login info. You may create or remove multiple usernames for the very same folder, if required. When you go to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be marked with a tiny padlock icon.

By following precisely the same steps, you will be able to create several different login credentials for the very same folder to give several individuals their own username/password. All secured folders shall feature a small padlock sign in the File Manager section.
