A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the proper login details are supplied. This can be an entire website or just one page that is located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up in which you will need to input a username and a password. If you enter the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue exploring the content without needing to do anything more. In case the login details aren't correct, however, you shall see information that you aren't allowed to view the content. If this option is active, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The feature is quite useful if you'd like to limit the access to some content or if you are developing a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Website Hosting

Setting up a password-protected area will take no more than a couple of clicks and a few seconds if you host your Internet sites within a shared website hosting account with our company. You won't have to do anything challenging - you will have to choose a domain/subdomain, to choose which folder under it must be secured, and then to enter the login name and password that'll be used to access that folder. If a number of people need their own login details, there shall not be a problem to create a number of different usernames with access to the exact same folder. All secured folders shall appear with a padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you will always know where this option is activated. If you wish to deactivate the protection feature for any folder, you can disable it from the exact same section of the CP in which you have enabled it.
