A password-protected directory or area is a folder which may be accessed only when a username and a password are typed in, so no unauthorized people could check out its content. This option may be used for the primary folder of a particular Internet site or exclusively for a certain subfolder in accordance with your preferences. As an example, when you are developing a new website and you don't want people to see it before it's ready, you might want to restrict the access to it altogether, and if you need only some people to be able to access particular files, you can password-protect only a certain folder, while the remainder of the website could be seen by everybody. In either case, a “403 Forbidden” error page shall appear in the event that the login details the visitor types in aren't right. Even a direct link to a file shall not work if any folder above it is password-protected.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting
With the password protection tool supplied with every cloud hosting plan that we offer, you will be able to protect any content which you have inside your account with merely a few clicks. Because the tool is an element of our ground breaking Hepsia Control Panel, it provides exactly the same uncomplicated interface and you'll not require any special skills to use it. When you navigate to the Password Protection section, you'll need to choose one of the domains or subdomains that you have within the account and then decide if the protection should be turned on for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then enter the username and the password that you would like and you will be set. A little padlock symbol inside the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the exact same way you'll be able to add many usernames and passwords for the same folder if you would like several people to have their own login credentials.
