If you'd like to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could activate password protection for a certain folder - either the primary website folder or another one below it. When this feature is enabled, a pop-up will appear every time anyone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have protected the domain.com folder. In case the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no method of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that nobody will be able to access the shielded content. The function may be beneficial in various situations - if only a number of individuals need to be able to see particular files, if you are creating an Internet site and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, etc.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

With the password protection tool that comes with each cloud hosting plan that we provide, you shall be able to secure any content which you have inside your account with simply a few mouse clicks. Because the tool is an element of our revolutionary Hepsia CP, it offers the same simple interface and you'll not need any special skills to use it. Once you visit the Password Protection section, you will have to choose one of the domains or subdomains you have in the account and then choose if the protection should be active for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password that you want and you will be ready. A tiny padlock icon inside the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the same way you shall be able to include multiple usernames and passwords for the same folder if you would like several people to have their own login credentials.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to set up password protection for any content that you have inside your semi-dedicated server account. We've added an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel through which you will be able to switch on the feature with a few mouse clicks and without any problems, even if you're not very tech-savvy. You'll only have to choose the hostname (domain or subdomain), the specific folder that should be secured (the main folder or a subfolder) plus the login name and password. The protection will take effect at once, so if you make an effort to open the password-protected URL within your browser, you will need to input the newly created login details before you can proceed. You'll also be able to give different usernames for the exact same folder to a number of individuals, so you'll not need to share the same login details with everyone. Any password-protected folder shall have a compact padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you shall be able to recognize this sort of folders in no time.
