A password-protected directory or area is a folder which may be accessed only when a username and a password are provided, so no unauthorized people may observe its content. This feature could be used for the main folder of a specific site or only for a certain subfolder based upon the needs you have. For instance, when you are developing a new Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it is completely ready, you may want to restrict the access to it as a whole, while if you need only some individuals to be able to access specific files, you are able to password-protect only a certain folder, while the rest of the Internet site may be seen by anyone. Anyway, a “403 Forbidden” error page shall appear when the login details the visitor enters are not accurate. Even a direct link to a file shall not work as long as any folder above it is password-protected.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

With the password protection tool provided with each cloud hosting package that we provide, you will be able to protect any content which you have inside your account with only a few mouse clicks. Because the tool is part of our ground breaking Hepsia CP, it features the exact same uncomplicated interface and you'll not require any special skills to use it. As soon as you navigate to the Password Protection section, you'll need to choose one of the domains or subdomains which you have inside the account and then choose whether the protection should be active for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type in the username and the password that you want and you'll be all set to go. A little padlock icon inside the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the very same way you'll be able to add multiple usernames and passwords for the same folder if you would like several people to have their own login credentials.
