A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the right login credentials are supplied. This may be a whole Internet site or simply a single page that's located within a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up in which you must type a username and also a password. If you input the right ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content with no need to do anything more. When the login details are not accurate, however, you'll see a note that you aren't permitted to see the content. If this function is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is incredibly useful if you'd like to limit the access to some content or if you work on a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll be able to protect any content you have uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it's part of, so you'll not need to type in any code at any time. You will only have to select one of the domains/subdomains that you have in the hosting account and to select which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then type in the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be good to go. The protection will be enabled immediately, so anybody who attempts to access the freshly protected folder shall have to enter the accurate login info. In case various individuals have to be able to access the exact same content, you can create a separate username for each one.
