A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the right login credentials are provided. This can be a whole site or simply a single page that is situated in a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up in which you have to enter a username and also a password. In case you type the appropriate ones, you can continue browsing the content with no need to do anything else. When the login details aren't correct, however, you shall see a message that you aren't authorized to see the content. If this feature is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is very useful if you'd like to restrict the access to some content or if you are developing an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.

Due to the fact that the tool is a component of our innovative Hepsia Control Panel, it has the exact same simple interface and you'll not need any special skills to use it. When you go to the Password Protection section, you'll need to choose one of the domains or subdomains which you have inside the account and then choose if the protection should be activated for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password that you would like and you'll be set. A little padlock symbol within the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the exact same way you'll be able to include many usernames and passwords for the same folder if you would like several people to have their own login credentials.
