If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you can enable password protection for a given folder - either the main site folder or a different one below it. If this feature is turned on, 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 if you have secured only the domain.com folder. When the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no way to get around this restriction, so you can rest assured that no one will be able to access the protected content. The feature can be beneficial in numerous cases - if only a number of people should be able to see certain files, if you are building a website and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

When you use any of our cloud hosting solutions, you will be able to make password-protected areas with ease even if you have no experience with this sort of matters. We've incorporated an extremely easy-to-use point-and-click tool within the Hepsia CP, offered with all accounts, so you will be able to secure any folder within a matter of seconds. You will only have to select a domain or a subdomain and the particular folder that should be protected (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to type the username and password that will be used to access the folder in question later on. Every protected folder will have a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see at a glance what content is protected and what's not. If necessary, you may create a number of sets of login details for the same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall be able to secure any content that you've uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it's a part of, so you shall not have to write any code at any time. You will simply have to choose one of the domains/subdomains that you have in the web 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 shall be all set. The protection shall be switched on at once, so anyone that attempts to access the newly secured folder shall have to enter the correct login information. In cases where various individuals have to be able to open the same content, you could set up a separate username for each of them.
