A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the proper login details are provided. This may be a whole Internet site or only one page that is located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up where you have to type a username and a password. In case you type the right ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content with no need to do anything extra. When the login details aren't right, however, you shall see a note that you are not authorized to see the content. If this feature is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is extremely useful if you want to limit the access to some content or if you are creating an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

Creating a password-protected area will take just a couple of mouse clicks and a few seconds when you host your websites inside a cloud web hosting account with us. You will not need to do anything difficult - you'll need to choose a domain/subdomain, to pick which folder under it has to be protected, and then to type in the login name and password which will be used to access that folder. If a number of individuals require their own login credentials, there won't be a problem to create numerous different usernames with access to the same folder. All protected folders will appear with a padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you will always know where this option is active. If you want to disable the protection function for any folder, you can disable it from the same section of the CP in which you have enabled it.
