A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are provided. This can be a whole website or simply one page that's located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you'll see a web browser pop-up where you will need to type in a username as well as a password. If you input the correct ones, you can continue browsing the content with no need to do anything extra. In case the login credentials aren't right, however, you will see information that you aren't allowed to view the content. When this function is activated, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The option is quite practical if you wish to limit the access to some content or if you are developing 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 that comes with every shared web hosting plan which we offer, you will be able to shield any content which you have within your account with simply a few clicks. As the tool is a component of our innovative Hepsia Control Panel, it provides the exact same simple interface and you will not need any special skills to use it. As soon as you go to the Password Protection section, you'll need to choose one of the domains or subdomains which you have inside the account and then choose if the protection should be turned on for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password that you'd like and you will be ready. A small padlock symbol within the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the same exact way you shall be able to include a number of usernames and passwords for the same folder if you'd like several people to have their own login credentials.
