If you would like keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could activate password protection for a particular folder - either the primary site folder or any other one below it. In case this function is active, a pop-up shall appear each and every time somebody attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected the domain.com folder. When the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any way of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The feature can be helpful in numerous scenarios - if only certain individuals should be able to see certain files, if you are developing an Internet site and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Web Hosting

When you use any of our shared web hosting products, you can make password-protected areas easily even if you have no experience with this sort of matters. We have incorporated an extremely easy-to-use point-and-click tool within the Hepsia CP, provided with all accounts, so you'll be able to secure any folder within just seconds. You'll simply have to select a domain or a subdomain and the exact folder that must be protected (the main one or a subfolder), and then to enter the preferred username and password that'll be used to access the folder in question at some point. Each secured folder will have a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you will be able to see instantly what content is secured and what is not. If needed, you may create several different sets of login details for exactly the same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to set up password protection for any content you have within your semi-dedicated server account. We've included an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel where you will be able to enable the feature with a number of mouse clicks and with no difficulties, even if you are not really tech-savvy. You will simply need to select the hostname (domain or subdomain), the specific folder which has to be secured (the primary folder or a subfolder) and the login name and password. The protection will take effect immediately, so if you make an effort to open the password-protected URL within your Internet browser, you will have to type in the newly created login credentials before you can proceed. You will also be able to give different usernames for the very same folder to a number of people, so you will not have to share the same login credentials with everyone. Any password-protected folder shall have a tiny padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you'll be able to recognize such folders easily.
