If you wish to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to activate password protection for a specific folder - either the primary Internet site folder or any other one below it. If this feature is enabled, a pop-up shall appear every time someone tries 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 just the domain.com folder. If the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any way to get around this restriction, so you can rest assured that nobody shall be able access the shielded content. The function could be helpful in various cases - if only some people need to be able to see particular files, if you work on a website and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, etc.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

All our Linux cloud hosting packages include an incredibly handy tool which will permit you to protect any folder within your account from unauthorized access with simply two mouse clicks. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia web hosting CP, you will just have to go to the Password Protection section, to select the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that has to be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type the username and the password that must be used to access the content in question. The function will be active straightaway, so in case you attempt to open the folder/website, you'll be prompted to enter the login information. You could create or remove multiple usernames for the exact same folder, if necessary. If you go to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be shown with a little padlock icon.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to protect any content you have uploaded via our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is a part of, so you'll not have to input any code at any time. You'll simply have to pick one of the domains/subdomains you have in the hosting account and to determine which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You can then type the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be good to go. The protection shall be turned on straightaway, so anyone who attempts to access the freshly secured folder will have to enter the right login information. When several individuals have to be able to open the same content, you could set up a separate username for each one.
