A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the correct login details are offered. This can be an entire site or just one page that is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up where you will have to input a username as well as a password. If you enter the correct ones, you can continue browsing the content without having to do anything extra. When the login details aren't right, however, you'll see a message that you aren't authorized to look at the content. In case this option is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The option is incredibly practical if you want to restrict the access to some content or if you are creating an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.

All of our cloud web hosting plans come with a very useful tool that will permit you to protect any folder within your account from unauthorized access with simply two clicks. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia website hosting CP, you will only have to visit the Password Protection section, to pick the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which should be secured - 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 function shall be activated at once, so in case you make an effort to open the folder/website, you'll be prompted to input the login details. You can create or remove many usernames for the exact same folder, if needed. When you go to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be indicated by a little padlock icon.
