A password-protected directory or area is a folder that may be accessed when a username and a password are provided, so no unauthorized people may see its content. This function can be used for the main folder of a certain website or exclusively for a specific subfolder in accordance with your preferences. As an illustration, if you are developing a new Internet site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being 100% ready, you need to prohibit the access to it completely, while if you want only some individuals to be able to access certain files, you may password-protect only a particular folder, while the other parts of the site can be seen by anybody. Anyway, a “403 Forbidden” error page shall appear in case the login details the visitor enters are not accurate. Even a direct link to a file won't work so long as any folder above it is password-protected.

Once you visit the Password Protection section, you will have to pick one of the domains or subdomains that you have within the account and then choose if the protection should be turned on for the primary folder or for a subfolder.

Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it's part of, so you'll not have to input any code at any time. You will simply need to pick one of the domains/subdomains which you have inside the hosting account and to choose which folder should be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You can then enter the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be ready. The protection will be switched on immediately, so anyone who tries to access the newly protected folder shall have to input the accurate login details. In case various individuals must be able to access the exact same content, you could set up a separate username for each.
