A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the correct login details are supplied. This could be an entire website or just one page which is in a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you will see a browser pop-up in which you have to enter a username as well as a password. If you type in the appropriate ones, you can continue exploring the content without having to do anything else. When the login credentials are not right, however, you'll see a message that you are not permitted to see the content. In case this function is active, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is incredibly handy if you need to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

We have built in a very easy-to-use point-and-click tool in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all accounts, so you'll be able to shield any folder within just a few seconds. You will only have to choose a domain or a subdomain and the particular folder that has to be secured (the main one or a subfolder), and then to type the desired username and password which will be used to access the folder in question when you need it. Any protected folder will have a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you will be able to see easily what content is protected and what is not. When necessary, you can create a number of different sets of login details for the same folder.

The protection will take effect instantly, so if you make an effort to open the password-protected URL within your Internet browser, you will have to type in the newly created login credentials before you proceed.

Each password-protected folder will have a little padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you shall be able to recognize such folders in no time.
