A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are provided. This may be a whole site or just a single page that is located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up where you must input a username as well as a password. If you input the right ones, you'll be able to continue exploring the content with no need to do anything else. In case the login credentials aren't right, however, you shall see information that you are not allowed to look at the content. If this feature is activated, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is quite handy if you want to restrict the access to some content or if you work on a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

You'll simply have to select a domain or a subdomain and the particular folder which should be secured (the main one or a subfolder), and then to type in the desired username and password which will be used to access the folder in question in the future. Each secured folder shall have padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you shall be able to see easily what content is secured and what's not. If required, you can create a number of different sets of login details for the same folder.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
Securing any folder with a password shall be easy if you host your Internet sites within a semi-dedicated server account with us. A user-friendly tool, which is incorporated into the Hepsia Control Panel, will enable you to select the exact folder you'd like to protect with a couple of mouse clicks and all you will need to type in will be the username and the password that will be used to access it later.

If you repeat the same basic steps, you'll be able to create many usernames for the exact same password-protected area, so numerous individuals will be able to access a particular folder with their own login credentials. You shall be able to see the protected folders at a glance either in precisely the same section of the Control Panel or inside the File Manager section where you'll identify them by their small padlock icons.
