A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login details are provided. This could be a whole site or simply one page which is located within a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up where you will have to input a username and also a password. In case you type in the right ones, you can continue surfing around the content without having to do anything more. If the login details aren't correct, however, you will see information that you are not allowed to see the content. When this option is active, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is very effective if you need to restrict the access to some content or if you are developing a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Web Hosting

All our shared web hosting services come with an incredibly useful tool which will permit you to protect any folder in your account from unauthorized access with just two clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will just have to visit the Password Protection section, to pick the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that needs to be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to enter the username and the password which have to be used so as to access the content in question. The function shall be active right away, so if you attempt to open the folder/website, you will be prompted to enter the login information. You may set up or remove a number of usernames for the same folder, when necessary. If you go to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be indicated by a tiny padlock icon.
