A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the proper login details are offered. This may be an entire website or simply one page that's in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up where you have to type in a username as well as a password. If you type the correct ones, you can continue browsing the content without having to do anything extra. If the login credentials aren't accurate, however, you will see a note that you are not allowed to look at the content. In case this function is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is extremely effective if you need to restrict the access to some content or if you work on a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall be able to create password protection for any content that you have within your semi-dedicated server
account. We've integrated an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel through which you shall be able to switch on the function with a number of mouse clicks and with no problems, even if you are not quite tech-savvy. You'll simply have to choose the hostname (domain or subdomain), the specific folder which needs to be protected (the main folder or a subfolder) as well as the login name and password. The protection will take effect right away, so if you try to open the password-protected URL in your browser, you will have to type in the newly created login credentials in order to proceed. Additionally, you'll be able to give different usernames for the very same folder to a number of individuals, so you'll not have to share the same login credentials with everyone. Each password-protected folder will have a little padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you shall be able to recognize such folders in no time.
