A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the right login details are offered. This may be an entire website or just one page that's situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up where you have to type in a username and a password. If you input the right ones, you'll be able to continue exploring the content with no need to do anything extra. If the login credentials are not correct, however, you will see information that you aren't authorized to view the content. If this function is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is very effective if you want to restrict the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

Password Protected Directories in Web Hosting

All our Linux web hosting packages feature an exceptionally useful tool which will permit you to secure any folder in your account from unauthorized access with only 2 clicks. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will only have to navigate to the Password Protection section, to select the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that needs to be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type the username and the password that should be used in order to access the content in question. The feature will be activated immediately, so in case you attempt to open the folder/website, you'll be prompted to type in the login information. You may create or remove multiple usernames for the exact same folder, if necessary. If you navigate to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be indicated by a little padlock icon.
