A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the proper login details are provided. This can be an entire website or only one page that's located in a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up in which you have to enter a username and also a password. In case you type in the correct ones, you can continue browsing the content with no need to do anything extra. If the login credentials aren't right, however, you shall see a message that you aren't allowed to look at 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 function is extremely handy if you need to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

package deal that we provide, you shall be able to shield any content which you have in your account with just a few clicks. As the tool is a component of our revolutionary Hepsia Control Panel, it offers the exact same simple interface and you will not need any special skills to use it. As soon as you navigate to the Password Protection section, you will have to pick one of the domains or subdomains that you have inside the account and then decide if the protection should be activated for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password you want and you will be set. A small padlock icon inside the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected.
