A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the correct login details are offered. This could be an entire Internet site or simply a single page that is located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you shall see a browser pop-up in which you will have to input a username as well as a password. If you type the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content without the need to do anything extra. If the login details aren't correct, however, you'll see information that you aren't allowed to look at the content. In case this option is activated, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is very effective if you wish to restrict the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Because the tool is part of our revolutionary Hepsia CP, it provides the exact same uncomplicated interface and you will not need any special skills to use it. When you go to the Password Protection section, you'll have to pick one of the domains or subdomains you have within the account and then decide if the protection should be turned on for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then enter the username and the password that you want and you shall be all set to go. A tiny padlock symbol within the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the same way you'll be able to add numerous usernames and passwords for the same folder if you want several people to have their own login credentials.
