A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the right login details are offered. This can be an entire site or just a single page that is situated in a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up in which you will have to enter a username as well as a password. In case you enter the correct ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content with no need to do anything else. When the login details are not correct, however, you shall see a note that you are not allowed to view the content. In case this feature is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is very useful if you need to limit the access to some content or if you are creating a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

Once you navigate to the Password Protection section, you will need to pick one of the domains or subdomains that you have inside the account and then decide if the protection should be active for the main folder or for a subfolder.

You shall be able to create password protection for any content which you have in your semi-dedicated server account. We have included an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel where you shall be able to enable the function with a number of clicks and without any troubles, even if you are not very tech-savvy. You'll only need to choose the hostname (domain or subdomain), the particular folder which must be protected (the primary folder or a subfolder) as well as the login name and password. The protection will take effect immediately, so if you make an attempt to open the password-protected URL in your Internet browser, you will need to type the newly created login credentials before you can proceed. Additionally, you'll be able to give different usernames for the exact same folder to a number of people, so you will not need to share the same login details with everybody. Any password-protected folder shall have a small padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you will be able to recognize this sort of folders easily.
