If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could switch on password protection for a particular folder - either the primary website folder or another one below it. If this feature is turned on, a pop-up shall appear every time a person tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have protected only the domain.com folder. In case the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any way of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that nobody shall be able access the protected content. The feature could be useful in a number of scenarios - if only a few individuals need to be able to see particular files, if you are developing an Internet site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, etc.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

With the password protection tool supplied with every single cloud hosting plan that we offer, you'll be able to secure any content that you have in your account with simply a few mouse clicks. As the tool is an element of our ground breaking Hepsia Control Panel, it offers the same simple interface and you will 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 switched on for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type in the username and the password that you want and you shall be ready. A tiny padlock icon within the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the same exact way you'll be able to include many 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 Hosting

You'll be able to set up password protection for any content which you have in your semi-dedicated server account. We have included an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel through which you will be able to switch on the function with a few clicks and with no complications, even if you are not quite tech-savvy. You'll simply have to choose the hostname (domain or subdomain), the exact folder which must be secured (the main folder or a subfolder) as well as the login name and password. The protection will take effect at once, so if you make an effort to open the password-protected URL in your web browser, you will have to enter the newly created login details before you proceed. Additionally, you'll be able to give different usernames for the exact same folder to a number of individuals, so you will not need to share the same login details with everybody. Any password-protected folder will have a tiny padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you will be able to recognize this kind of folders in no time.
