A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the right login credentials are supplied. This could be an entire site or only one page that's situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up in which you will have to type a username and a password. In case you type the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without having to do anything more. When the login details are not correct, however, you will see a message that you aren't authorized to look at the content. If this function is active, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is extremely handy if you want 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.

You shall be able to create password protection for any content that you have within your semi-dedicated server account. We have added an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel through which you will be able to enable the function with several clicks and with no complications, even if you're not quite tech-savvy.

The protection shall take effect at once, so if you attempt to open the password-protected URL in your browser, you'll need to enter the newly created login credentials before you proceed.

Each password-protected folder will have a tiny padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you will be able to recognize this type of folders easily.
