A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the correct login details are offered. This can be a whole site or just one page which is located within a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up where you will have to type a username and also a password. In case you enter the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue surfing around the content with no need to do anything extra. If the login credentials aren't accurate, however, you'll see information that you are not authorized to see the content. In case this feature is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is extremely practical if you'd like to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

As soon as you log in to your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll only have to navigate to the Password Protection section, to pick the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which needs to be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type the username and the password which have to be used in order to access the content in question. The feature shall be turned on instantly, so if you make an effort to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to input the login information. You could set up or remove a number of usernames for the very same folder, if necessary. When you go to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be marked with a little padlock icon.
