A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are supplied. This could be an entire website or just a single page that's in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up where you have to type in a username as well as a password. If you type the correct ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content without the need to do anything else. If the login credentials are not right, however, you'll see a message that you aren't allowed to view the content. In case this function is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The option is extremely useful if you need to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.

When you log in to your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll only have to go to the Password Protection section, to select the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that should be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type the username and the password which should be used in order to access the content in question. The function shall be active straightaway, so if you attempt to open the folder/website, you'll be prompted to type in the login information. You may create or remove numerous usernames for the exact same folder, when necessary. If you go to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be marked with a little padlock icon.
