A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the right login details are provided. This can be a whole Internet site or just one page that's in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you will see a browser pop-up in which you will need to input a username as well as a password. In case you enter the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without needing to do anything else. In case the login details are not right, however, you'll see a message that you are not permitted to view the content. In case this feature is active, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The feature is quite useful if you wish to limit the access to some content or if you are creating an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will just have to visit the Password Protection section, to select the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that has to be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type in the username and the password that should be used so as to access the content in question. The feature will be activated straightaway, so if you try to open the folder/website, you'll be prompted to enter the login info. You can set up or remove many usernames for the same folder, if needed. If you check out the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be shown with a tiny padlock icon.
