A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the right login credentials are supplied. This could be a whole website or only a single page that's situated in a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you shall see a browser pop-up in which you must type a username as well as a password. If you type in the right ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content without the need to do anything additional. In case the login details aren't correct, however, you shall see a message that you are not authorized to view the content. In case this feature is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is extremely effective if you wish to restrict the access to some content or if you are creating an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.

If you use any of our web hosting packages, you shall be able to set up password-protected areas without difficulty even if you don't have any experience with this sort of matters. We've integrated an incredibly easy-to-use point-and-click tool in the Hepsia CP, which comes with all accounts, so you will be able to shield any folder within merely seconds. You will have to choose a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder that has to be protected (the main one or a subfolder), and then to type in the preferred username and password that'll be used to access the folder in question when you need it. Each and every secured folder will have a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see at a glance what content is protected and what's not. If needed, you can make a number of different sets of login credentials for precisely the same folder.
