A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the right login credentials are provided. This could be a whole site or only a single page that's situated in a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up in which you have to enter a username and a password. If you type the right ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content without having to do anything else. If the login credentials aren't right, however, you'll see information that you aren't permitted to look at the content. When this function is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The feature is incredibly practical if you'd like to limit the access to some content or if you work on a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

Setting up a password-protected area will take only a few clicks and a few seconds when you host your Internet sites in a cloud hosting account with us. You will not have to do anything complicated - you'll have to choose a domain/subdomain, to pick which folder under it must be secured, and then to type the login name and password that will be used to access that folder. If a number of people need their own login details, there won't be a problem to make numerous different usernames with access to the same folder. All protected folders shall appear with a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you'll always know where this option is active. If you would like to turn off the protection function for any folder, you can disable it from the same exact section of the Control Panel in which you have enabled it.
