If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to activate password protection for a specific folder - either the primary site folder or another one below it. When this feature is activated, a pop-up shall appear every time someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login info will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured the domain.com folder. In case the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any way of getting around this restriction, so you can be sure 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 certain files, if you are building a website and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, and so on.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

With the password protection tool that is included with each cloud hosting package deal that we offer, you will be able to protect any content that you have within your account with just a few mouse clicks. Due to the fact that the tool is a component of our ground breaking Hepsia CP, it offers the exact same simple interface and you shall not need any special skills to use it. Once you navigate to the Password Protection section, you will have to choose one of the domains or subdomains which you have inside the account and then choose whether the protection should be turned on for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password that you want and you shall be ready. A tiny padlock symbol in the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the same way you shall be able to include numerous 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 Servers

You shall be able to create password protection for any content you have inside your semi-dedicated server account. We have included an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel via which you shall be able to activate the feature with a number of mouse clicks and with no problems, even if you are not very tech-savvy. You will only have to pick the hostname (domain or subdomain), the specific folder which needs to 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 attempt to open the password-protected URL in your browser, you'll have to enter the newly created login details before you proceed. You will also be able to give different usernames for the very same folder to a number of people, so you'll not need to share the same login credentials with everybody. Each password-protected folder shall have a little padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you'll be able to recognize this sort of folders easily.
