If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could enable password protection for a specific folder - either the main site folder or another one below it. In case this function is turned on, a pop-up will appear every time a person tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have protected only the domain.com folder. When the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any method of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that no one will be able to access the shielded content. The function may be beneficial in a variety of scenarios - if only a number of individuals need to be able to see particular files, if you work on a site and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Web Hosting

Creating a password-protected area shall take just a few mouse clicks and a few seconds if you host your Internet sites inside a cloud web hosting account with our company. You'll not need to do anything challenging - you'll have to choose a domain/subdomain, to select which folder under it should be protected, and then to type the login name and password that'll be used to access that folder. In case a number of individuals need their own login details, there won't be a problem to make a number of different usernames with access to the same folder. All secured folders shall appear with a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you shall always know where this option is activated. If you'd like to deactivate the protection function for any folder, you can deactivate it from the exact same section of the Control Panel in which you have enabled it.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to set up password protection for any content you have inside your semi-dedicated server account. We have included an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel via which you will be able to enable the function with several clicks and with no problems, even if you are not quite tech-savvy. You will only have to choose the hostname (domain or subdomain), the particular folder that has to be protected (the main folder or a subfolder) as well as the login name and password. The protection shall take effect right away, so if you make an attempt to open the password-protected URL within your Internet browser, you will have to type the newly created login credentials in order to proceed. You'll also be able to give different usernames for the exact same folder to a number of people, so you will not have to share the same login credentials with anyone. Any password-protected folder shall have a tiny padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you'll be able to recognize such folders with ease.
