Can I Password Protect Directories?
Yes, you can password protect specific directories
within your website.
Please Note: If you
are a FrontPage user with the FrontPage extensions installed on your site, please see below.
You can begin assigning unique ids and passwords by
following the procedures for .htaccess. As such, visitors will be prompted for id and
password to gain access to any web page within such a directory. This does NOT affect FTP
HTAccess is a NCSA compatible (our server is) way to
use password-protection on HTML documents and server directories. The interface prompts
the user through the browser for a password, if HTAccess is attached to the directory tree
containing the HTML page requested. Check our .htaccess
