A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are offered. This could be a whole website or just a single page which is situated in a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you'll see a web browser pop-up in which you will need to input a username as well as a password. If you input the appropriate ones, you can continue exploring the content without the need to do anything extra. In case the login details are not correct, however, you will see a note that you are not permitted to view the content. In case this function is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is very effective if you want to restrict the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Website Hosting

Setting up a password-protected area will take no more than several clicks and a few seconds if you host your Internet sites in a cloud website hosting account with us. You'll not have to do anything complicated - you will need to pick a domain/subdomain, to pick which folder under it should be secured, and then to input the login name and password that'll be used to access that folder. In case a number of people require their own login details, there won't be a problem to set up several different usernames with access to the same folder. All secured folders shall appear with a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you shall always know where this feature is enabled. If you wish to deactivate the protection function for any folder, you can deactivate it from the exact same section of the Control Panel in which you have enabled it.

It will take a few mouse clicks to turn on the password protection feature for any folder which you have, if you use one of our semi-dedicated hosting service. We have an incredibly helpful tool, which has a user-friendly point-and-click interface and which can be used by people with no experience. It's included in the Hepsia Control Panel, which you'll get to manage your new account and when you log in and check out the Password Protection section, you'll be able to pick the domain or subdomain which needs to be protected and then the particular folder - either the main folder or any subfolder under it. You will also see 2 boxes where you will have to enter the login name and the password which will be required to access the folder in question and you'll be all set. By following exactly the same steps, you will be able to set up several different login credentials for the very same folder to give several people their own username/password. All secured folders will have a small padlock sign in the File Manager section.
