A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the correct login credentials are offered. This could be a whole site or just one page that is located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up in which you must enter a username as well as a password. In case you type the appropriate ones, you can continue browsing the content with no need to do anything additional. When the login credentials are not accurate, however, you shall see a message that you aren't permitted to view the content. In case this feature is activated, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is incredibly effective if you'd like to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Web Hosting
With the password protection tool that is included with every single cloud web hosting package deal which we provide, you will be able to secure any content which you have in your account with just a few clicks. As the tool is a component of our innovative Hepsia CP, it provides the same simple interface and you'll not need any special skills to use it. As soon as you go to the Password Protection section, you will need to select one of the domains or subdomains which you have within the account and then decide if the protection should be activated for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password that you would like and you will be all set. A small padlock icon inside the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the same way you shall be able to add several usernames and passwords for the same folder if you want several people to have their own login credentials.

Protecting any folder with a password shall be quite simple if you host your websites within a semi-dedicated server account with our company.
