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 site folder or another one below it. Whenever this function is active, a pop-up will appear anytime anyone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have protected only the domain.com folder. When the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that no one shall be able access the protected 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 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

If you use any of our cloud hosting packages, you can create password-protected areas with ease even if you don't have any experience with this kind of matters. We have incorporated a really easy-to-use point-and-click tool in the Hepsia CP, supplied with all accounts, so you'll be able to secure any folder within just a few seconds. You'll simply have to select a domain or a subdomain and the exact folder which has to be secured (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to enter the preferred username and password that'll be used to access the folder in question in the future. Any secured folder shall have padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you will be able to see instantly what content is protected and what's not. If needed, you could make a number of different sets of login credentials for precisely the same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to protect any content that you have uploaded via our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's part of, so you shall not have to input any code at any time. You'll simply have to pick one of the domains/subdomains which you have inside the hosting account and to determine which folder must be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then type in the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be ready. The protection shall be switched on straightaway, so anyone who attempts to access the newly secured folder shall have to type in the correct login details. In case several people should be able to open the same content, you can create a separate username for each of them.
