    Using .htaccess and .htpasswd on website


    I am using these so i can password protect a directory of my website, but they make the directory (and password dialog) loads very slowly

    Is this meant to happen?
    How can i fix it?
    Is there a better way to have passwords without installing no insecure stuff or any extras?
