If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can activate password protection for a certain folder - either the primary website folder or any other one below it. Whenever this feature is active, a pop-up shall appear each and every time anyone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured only the domain.com folder. When the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any way to get around this restriction, so you can rest assured that nobody will be able to access the protected content. The feature could be useful in a variety of scenarios - if only a number of people should be able to see specific files, if you are building a site and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Web Hosting

With the password protection tool supplied with each and every cloud web hosting package deal which we offer, you will be able to protect any content that you have in your account with just a few mouse clicks. Since the tool is a component of our ground breaking Hepsia CP, it offers exactly the same simple interface and you shall not need any special skills to use it. When you go to the Password Protection section, you'll need to choose one of the domains or subdomains which you have inside the account and then decide whether the protection should be switched on for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password that you would like and you shall be ready. A tiny padlock icon inside the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the exact same way you shall be able to include several usernames and passwords for the same folder if you want several people to have their own login credentials.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall be able to set up password protection for any content that you have within 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 activate the function with several mouse clicks and without any troubles, even if you are not really tech-savvy. You will simply have to select the hostname (domain or subdomain), the specific folder that has to be secured (the primary folder or a subfolder) plus the login name and password. The protection shall take effect right away, so if you make an effort to open the password-protected URL in your browser, you'll have to type the newly created login details before you proceed. Additionally, you'll be able to give different usernames for the very same folder to a number of people, so you will not have to share the same login credentials with everyone. Each password-protected folder shall have a compact padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you will be able to recognize such folders with ease.
