A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login details are offered. This can be a whole Internet site or simply one page that's 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 have to input a username and a password. If you input the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content without having to do anything additional. If the login credentials aren't accurate, however, you will see a message that you aren't allowed to view the content. When this option is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is very handy if you'd like to limit the access to some content or if you work on an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting
All of our Linux cloud hosting feature a really handy tool that'll permit you to secure any folder within your account from unauthorized access with only 2 clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll simply have to go to the Password Protection section, to pick the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which has to be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type in the username and the password that should be used so as to access the content in question. The function will be activated at once, so in case you try to open the folder/website, you'll be prompted to type in the login information. You may create or remove a number of usernames for the very same folder, if needed. If you navigate to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be indicated by a little padlock icon.
