A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login details are offered. This may be an entire Internet site or simply one page that is located in a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you'll see a web browser pop-up in which you will need to type a username as well as a password. In case you input the correct ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content with no need to do anything else. If the login details aren't right, however, you'll see a note that you are not allowed to see the content. When this function is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is incredibly effective if you wish to restrict the access to some content or if you are developing a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting
All of our shared hosting include an incredibly convenient tool that'll enable you to protect any folder in your account from unauthorized access with simply two clicks. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia website hosting CP, you will only have to go to the Password Protection section, to choose the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that should be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type in the username and the password which have to be used to access the content in question. The feature shall be activated instantly, so in case you make an effort to open the folder/website, you'll be prompted to type in the login details. You can create or remove many usernames for the exact same folder, if needed. When you check out the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be shown with a small padlock icon.
