A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are supplied. This may be an entire Internet site or just one page that is situated in a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you shall see a browser pop-up in which you have to input a username as well as a password. In case you type the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content with no need to do anything more. In case the login credentials aren't right, however, you will see information that you aren't permitted to look at 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 function is very useful if you want to prohibit the access to some content or if you are creating a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Hosting

Setting up a password-protected area will take only a few clicks and a few seconds when you host your Internet sites in a hosting account with our company. You'll not have to do anything challenging - you will need to pick a domain/subdomain, to select which folder under it has to be protected, and then to type in the login name and password which will be used to access that folder. If a number of people require their own login credentials, there won't be a problem to set up a variety of different usernames with access to the very same folder. All secured folders shall appear with a padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you will always know where this feature is active. If you would like to turn off the protection function for any folder, you can deactivate it from the very same section of the CP where you have enabled it.

The protection shall take effect at once, so if you make an effort to open the password-protected URL inside your browser, you will need to type in the newly created login credentials before you proceed. Additionally, you'll be able to give different usernames for the same folder to a number of individuals, so you'll not need to share the same login credentials with everyone. Any password-protected folder shall have a tiny padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you'll be able to recognize this type of folders with ease.
