A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the correct login details are offered. This can be an entire Internet site or just one page which is located within a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up where you will have to enter a username as well as a password. If you enter the correct ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content without needing to do anything more. If the login credentials aren't correct, however, you'll see a message that you are not permitted to look at the content. In case this option is activated, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is extremely useful if you want to prohibit the access to some content or if you are creating a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
Password Protected Directories in Hosting

feature an exceptionally handy tool that'll allow you to secure any folder within your account from unauthorized access with simply 2 mouse clicks. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will simply have to visit the Password Protection section, to pick 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 that should be used to access the content in question. The feature will be turned on straightaway, so if you attempt to open the folder/website, you'll be prompted to enter the login info. You may set up or remove multiple usernames for the exact same folder, if necessary. When you go to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be marked with a little padlock icon.
