A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the right login credentials are provided. This can be an entire site or simply a single page that is located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up where you must input a username and also a password. In case you enter the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue exploring the content with no need to do anything more. In case the login details are not correct, however, you'll see a note that you aren't authorized to see the content. In case this function is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is incredibly effective if you want to restrict the access to some content or if you are developing a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Website Hosting
With the password protection tool that is included with each shared website hosting package deal which we provide, you will be able to protect any content that you have inside your account with merely a few mouse clicks. Due to the fact that the tool is an element of our innovative Hepsia Control Panel, it provides the same uncomplicated interface and you'll not require any special skills to use it. When you navigate to the Password Protection section, you'll have to choose one of the domains or subdomains which you have within the account and then choose whether the protection should be turned on for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then type in the username and the password that you would like and you'll be ready. A tiny padlock symbol inside the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the exact same way you will be able to add numerous usernames and passwords for the same folder if you'd like several people to have their own login credentials.
