If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could switch on password protection for a certain folder - either the primary site folder or a different one below it. Whenever this feature is activated, a pop-up will appear every time someone 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 secured the domain.com folder. If the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no way to get around this restriction, so you can rest assured that nobody shall be able access the shielded content. The option could be beneficial in a variety of cases - if only certain people should be able to see certain files, if you are building a website and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, etc.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

With the password protection tool supplied with every single cloud hosting package which we provide, you shall be able to protect any content that you have in your account with merely a few mouse clicks. As the tool is part of our ground breaking Hepsia Control Panel, it provides the exact same uncomplicated interface and you'll not need any special skills to use it. When you visit the Password Protection section, you will need to pick one of the domains or subdomains that you have within the account and then choose if the protection should be activated for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then enter the username and the password that you'd like and you will be all set to go. A small padlock icon within the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the very same way you will be able to include several usernames and passwords for the same folder if you'd like several people to have their own login credentials.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to secure any content you have uploaded via our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's part of, so you will not need to type in any code at any time. You'll only need to choose one of the domains/subdomains you have inside the web hosting account and to pick which folder should be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You can then type the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be all set. The protection will be enabled right away, so anyone that attempts to access the freshly secured folder will have to input the accurate login info. In cases where several people should be able to access the exact same content, you can create a separate username for each one.
