A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the right login credentials are offered. This could be an entire website or only a single page that's located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you will see a browser pop-up where you will have to input a username as well as a password. If you input the right ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content with no need to do anything extra. If the login credentials are not accurate, however, you will see a message that you are not permitted to look at the content. If this feature is activated, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The option is extremely handy if you wish 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 Hosting

All of our Linux hosting plans include an incredibly handy tool which will enable you to protect any folder inside your account from unauthorized access with simply two clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia web hosting CP, you will just have to go to the Password Protection section, to choose the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that has to be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type the username and the password which have to be used to access the content in question. The function will be activated immediately, so in case you try to open the folder/website, you'll be prompted to enter the login info. You can set up or remove a number of usernames for the very same folder, when necessary. If you check out the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be indicated by a little padlock icon.

You will also see two boxes in which you shall have to type in the login name and the password that will be necessary to access the folder in question and you shall be ready. By following the very same steps, you are able to set up many different login credentials for the same folder to give several people their own username/password. All protected folders shall feature a small padlock sign in the File Manager section.
