A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the correct login details are offered. This could be an entire Internet site or just a single page that's located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up in which you have to type a username as well as a password. In case you type the right ones, you can continue exploring the content without needing to do anything additional. If the login credentials are not accurate, however, you shall see information that you aren't allowed to see the content. In case this function is enabled, 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 prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
Password Protected Directories in Hosting
If you use any of our hosting products, you'll be able to make password-protected areas easily even if you have no experience with this kind of matters. We have incorporated an incredibly easy-to-use point-and-click tool in the Hepsia CP, offered with all accounts, so you will be able to protect any folder within just seconds. You will only have to choose a domain or a subdomain and the exact folder that must be secured (the main one or a subfolder), and then to input the username and password which will be used to access the folder in question when you need it. Each and every protected folder shall have padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you shall be able to see instantly what content is secured and what's not. If required, you can make a number of sets of login details for exactly the same folder.
