A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the right login credentials are provided. This may be an entire website or simply one page that's in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you will see a browser pop-up in which you will have to type a username and also a password. In case you type the correct ones, you can continue surfing around the content without the need to do anything extra. If the login credentials aren't accurate, however, you shall see a message that you are not allowed to view the content. If this feature is activated, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is quite effective if you want to prohibit the access to some content or if you are creating a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting

When you use any of our shared hosting plans, you can make password-protected areas easily even if you have no experience with this sort of matters. We've included a very easy-to-use point-and-click tool in the Hepsia CP, supplied with all accounts, so you will be able to secure any folder within just seconds. You will simply have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the exact folder that must be protected (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to type in the username and password that'll be used to access the folder in question when you need it. Each and every secured folder will have a padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you shall be able to see immediately what content is secured and what is not. If needed, you can make a number of different sets of login details for exactly the same folder.
