Password Protected Directories
See how to make a protected and user-only area in your site with password-protected directories.
A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the right login details are offered. This can be an entire Internet site or simply a single page that is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up in which you will have to type a username and a password. In case you input the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content without needing to do anything else. If the login details aren't correct, however, you shall see a note that you aren't permitted to view the content. When this feature is active, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is very handy if you want to prohibit the access to some content or if you are creating an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting
If you use any of our cloud hosting
products, you can set up password-protected areas effortlessly even if you have zero experience with this kind of matters. We've integrated an incredibly easy-to-use point-and-click tool into the Hepsia Control Panel, offered with all accounts, so you'll be able to secure any folder within just a few seconds. You'll simply have to select a domain or a subdomain and the exact folder which should be secured (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to enter the preferred username and password that'll be used to access the folder in question at some point. Each secured folder will have a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you will be able to see easily what content is protected and what is not. If needed, you may create a number of sets of login details for the same folder.
