If you'd like to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you could activate password protection for a given folder - either the primary Internet site folder or another one below it. When this function is turned on, a pop-up shall appear every time anyone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured just the domain.com folder. In case the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any way to get around this restriction, so you can rest assured that no one will be able to access the protected content. The feature can be beneficial in various scenarios - if only a number of people must be able to see specific files, if you are building a website and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

With the password protection tool that comes with every single cloud hosting package that we offer, you shall be able to secure any content which you have in your account with merely a few mouse clicks. Due to the fact that the tool is part of our innovative Hepsia Control Panel, it has the exact same uncomplicated interface and you shall not need any special skills to use it. Once you check out the Password Protection section, you will have to pick one of the domains or subdomains which you have within the account and then choose whether the protection should be switched on for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then type in the username and the password that you'd like and you will be all set to go. A little padlock icon inside the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the very 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 Servers

You shall be able to set up password protection for any content which you have inside your semi-dedicated server account. We have included an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel where you shall be able to activate the function with a few mouse clicks and without any complications, even if you're not really tech-savvy. You'll only have to choose the hostname (domain or subdomain), the specific folder which needs 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 try to open the password-protected URL in your browser, you'll have to input the newly created login credentials in order to 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 details with everybody. Any password-protected folder shall have a small padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you shall be able to recognize this sort of folders in no time.
