A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the right login credentials are supplied. This may be a whole site or only a single page that is located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up where you will need to input a username as well as a password. In case you type the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content without the need to do anything extra. When the login credentials aren't accurate, however, you'll see information that you are not permitted to see the content. In case this feature is active, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is quite effective 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 Shared Web Hosting

With the password protection tool provided with every single shared web hosting plan that we provide, you will be able to secure any content that you have in your account with simply a few clicks. Because the tool is an element of our ground breaking Hepsia Control Panel, it features the same simple interface and you will not require any special skills to use it. Once you go to the Password Protection section, you will need to choose one of the domains or subdomains which you have in the account and then decide whether the protection should be switched on for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password you want and you shall be all set to go. A little padlock icon within the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the same way you will be able to include a number of usernames and passwords for the same folder if you want several people to have their own login credentials.
