A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the proper login details are supplied. This could be a whole site or simply a single page that's in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up in which you will need to type a username as well as a password. In case you input the right ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content without the need to do anything extra. When the login details aren't correct, however, you shall see a message that you are not allowed to see the content. In case this function is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is quite handy if you want to limit the access to some content or if you work on a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

We've incorporated a really easy-to-use point-and-click tool within the Hepsia CP, supplied with all accounts, so you will be able to secure any folder within merely seconds. You will have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder that has to be protected (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to type in the preferred username and password that will be used to access the folder in question when you need it. Each protected folder shall have padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see at a glance what content is protected and what is not. If required, you may create a number of sets of login details for the same folder.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
Securing any folder with a password shall be quite simple if you host your Internet sites within a semi-dedicated server account with our company. A user-friendly tool, that's integrated into the Hepsia CP, will enable you to select the particular folder that you want to secure with a couple of mouse clicks and all you'll need to input will be the username and the password that'll be used to access it later on. You won't encounter any complications even if you haven't had a website hosting account before, because you do not need any previous knowledge or computer programming skills to activate the function. If you repeat the same basic steps, you'll be able to create numerous usernames for the same password-protected area, so many people will be able to access a certain folder with their own login credentials. You will be able to see the secured folders easily either in the very same section of the CP or within the File Manager section where you will identify them by their little padlock icons.
