A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the proper login credentials are provided. This may be a whole site or only a single page that is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you will see a browser pop-up where you must enter a username as well as a password. In case you enter the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content with no need to do anything else. In case the login details aren't correct, however, you shall see a message that you are not allowed to look at the content. When this feature is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is incredibly effective if you'd like to limit the access to some content or if you work on a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Setting up a password-protected area will take only a couple of clicks and a few seconds if you host your websites in a cloud hosting account with our company. You will not need to do anything complex - you'll need to pick a domain/subdomain, to choose which folder under it has to be protected, and then to input the login name and password that'll be used to access that folder. When a number of people require their own login details, there shall not be a problem to make numerous different usernames with access to the very same folder. All secured folders will appear with a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you'll always know where this function is activated. If you wish to deactivate the protection function for any folder, you can deactivate it from the same section of the CP in which you have enabled it.
