A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the right login details are offered. This could be an entire site or simply a single page that is located in a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up where you have to enter a username and also a password. If you input the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content with no need to do anything extra. When the login details are not correct, however, you shall see a note that you aren't allowed to view the content. When this function is activated, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is incredibly handy if you'd like to limit 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 Web Hosting

Creating a password-protected area will take just a few mouse clicks and a few seconds when you host your sites within a cloud web hosting account with our company. You won't need to do anything difficult - you'll need to select a domain/subdomain, to select which folder under it has to be secured, and then to type the login name and password that'll be used to access that folder. In case a number of individuals require their own login details, there will not be a problem to set up numerous different usernames with access to the same exact folder. All protected folders will appear with a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you'll always know where this feature is enabled. If you'd like to disable the security feature for any folder, you can disable it from the same exact section of the CP where you have enabled it.
