A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the proper login details are supplied. This could be a whole website or simply a single page that is situated in a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up in which you must enter a username as well as a password. If you type in the correct ones, you'll be able to continue exploring the content without needing to do anything extra. In case the login details are not accurate, however, you shall see information that you are not authorized to see the content. If this feature is activated, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is incredibly useful if you'd like 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 prior to it being ready.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

Setting up a password-protected area shall take no more than a few mouse clicks and a few seconds when you host your sites within a cloud hosting account with our company. You shall not need to do anything challenging - you will have to pick a domain/subdomain, to select which folder under it must be secured, and then to enter the login name and password that'll be used to access that folder. When a number of people require their own login credentials, there will not be a problem to set up numerous different usernames with access to the exact same folder. All protected folders shall appear with a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you'll always know where this feature is enabled. If you would like to turn off the protection feature for any folder, you can disable it from the same exact section of the Control Panel where you have enabled it.
