A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the right login details are supplied. This may be a whole website or simply one page that's located within a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up in which you have to input a username and a password. In case you type in the correct ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content without the need to do anything more. In case the login credentials are not right, however, you'll see a note that you are not permitted to see the content. When this option is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The feature is extremely effective if you need to limit the access to some content or if you work on a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Website Hosting

With the password protection tool that is included with each and every cloud website hosting package which we offer, you'll be able to secure any content that you have within your account with just a few clicks. Since the tool is part of our revolutionary Hepsia CP, it has the exact same simple interface and you shall not need any special skills to use it. When you visit the Password Protection section, you'll need to pick one of the domains or subdomains which you have in the account and then choose whether the protection should be active for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password that you'd like and you'll be all set to go. A tiny padlock icon inside the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the very same way you shall be able to include a number of usernames and passwords for the same folder if you would like several people to have their own login credentials.
