A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the right login details are offered. This could be an entire site or simply a single page which is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up where you have to enter a username and a password. If you input the right ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content without having to do anything else. In case the login credentials are not correct, however, you shall see information that you are not authorized to see the content. If this function is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is extremely practical if you need to restrict the access to some content or if you are creating a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Hosting

When you use any of our hosting solutions, you'll be able to create password-protected areas easily even if you have zero experience with this sort of matters. We have integrated a really easy-to-use point-and-click tool into the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts, so you will be able to secure any folder within just a few seconds. You'll simply have to select a domain or a subdomain and the exact folder that has to be secured (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to type in the preferred username and password that'll be used to access the folder in question when you need it. Each secured folder will have a padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you shall be able to see instantly what content is protected and what is not. If necessary, you can create a number of sets of login details for the same folder.
