A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are offered. This may be an entire site or simply a single page that's located within a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up in which you must type a username and also a password. If you type in the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content without the need to do anything extra. If the login details aren't accurate, however, you will see a message that you are not authorized to view the content. If this feature is activated, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is incredibly useful if you need to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Web Hosting

All our shared web hosting include an exceptionally useful tool that will enable you to protect any folder in your account from unauthorized access with simply two clicks. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will simply have to visit the Password Protection section, to select the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that should be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type in the username and the password that have to be used so as to access the content in question. The feature shall be active at once, so in case you make an effort to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to input the login details. You could set up or remove multiple usernames for the same folder, when necessary. If you go to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be indicated by a small padlock icon.
