A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the correct login details are offered. This can be a whole site or simply a single page which is located in a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you shall see a browser pop-up in which you must enter a username and a password. In case you enter the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue surfing around the content without needing to do anything else. When the login details aren't right, however, you'll see a message that you aren't allowed to see the content. If this function is activated, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is extremely useful if you wish to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Website Hosting

We have built in an incredibly easy-to-use point-and-click tool within the Hepsia CP, which comes with all accounts, so you will be able to protect any folder within merely seconds. You'll only have to choose a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder that should be secured (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to type the desired username and password that'll be used to access the folder in question later on. Each secured folder will have a padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you will be able to see easily what content is secured and what is not. If needed, you could make several different sets of login details for the exact same folder.
