A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the right login credentials are supplied. This could be a whole site or only a single page that's in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up in which you must type in a username and also a password. If you input the appropriate ones, you can continue surfing around the content with no need to do anything extra. When the login credentials aren't right, however, you will see information that you are not permitted to see the content. In case this function is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is quite practical if you wish to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.

The feature will be activated at once, so if you make an effort to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to enter the login information. You may create or remove a number of usernames for the exact same folder, when necessary. When you go to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be shown with a small padlock icon.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll be able to shield any content that you have uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it is part of, so you will not have to enter any code at any time. You will only have to select one of the domains/subdomains you have inside the web hosting account and to select which folder must be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can type in the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be ready. The protection shall be switched on at once, so anyone who attempts to access the recently protected folder shall have to type in the correct login details. When several individuals have to be able to open the exact same content, you could set up a separate username for each.
