A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the right login details are provided. This could be a whole site or just a single page that is located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you shall see a browser pop-up where you have to input a username as well as a password. If you type the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue exploring the content with no need to do anything additional. When the login details aren't correct, however, you will see a message that you are not allowed to view the content. When this feature is activated, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is incredibly effective if you need to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

Creating a password-protected area will take just a couple of clicks and a few seconds if you host your Internet sites inside a cloud hosting account with our company. You won't need to do anything difficult - you'll need to pick a domain/subdomain, to pick which folder under it has to be secured, and then to type in the login name and password which will be used to access that folder. In case a number of individuals need their own login details, there won't be a problem to set up a number of different usernames with access to the very same folder. All protected folders will appear with a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you shall always know where this option is activated. If you would like to turn off the security function for any folder, you can deactivate it from the exact same section of the Control Panel in which you have enabled it.

All protected folders will feature a small padlock sign in the File Manager section.
