If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you are able to activate password protection for a specific folder - either the primary website folder or any other one below it. If this feature is turned on, a pop-up shall appear every time someone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected only the domain.com folder. When the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no method of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that no one will be able to access the protected content. The feature could be useful in a number of scenarios - if only some individuals must be able to see particular files, if you are developing an Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, etc.

Password Protected Directories in Hosting

With the password protection tool that comes with each and every hosting plan which we provide, you will be able to protect any content which you have inside your account with only a few mouse clicks. As the tool is a component of our revolutionary Hepsia CP, it provides the same simple interface and you shall not require any special skills to use it. Once you navigate to the Password Protection section, you'll need to pick one of the domains or subdomains which you have within the account and then choose if the protection should be activated for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password you want and you shall be set. A little padlock symbol in the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the exact same way you shall 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

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to secure any content which you have uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it's a part of, so you will not have to input any code at any time. You will simply need to choose one of the domains/subdomains that you have inside the website hosting account and to select which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then type the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be all set. The protection will be activated straightaway, so anyone who tries to access the newly protected folder will have to enter the correct login info. When various individuals have to be able to open exactly the same content, you could make a separate username for each one.
