If you would like keep some content hidden from the public eye, you are able to enable password protection for a given folder - either the primary Internet site folder or a different one below it. When this option is turned on, a pop-up will appear each and every time somebody tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured only the domain.com folder. When the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no way to get around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one shall be able access the protected content. The feature could be useful in numerous scenarios - if only certain individuals must be able to see specific files, if you work on a site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Website Hosting
All our cloud website hosting packages feature an incredibly useful tool which will allow you to protect any folder in your account from unauthorized access with simply 2 clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll simply have to navigate to the Password Protection section, to select the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which should be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to input the username and the password which should be used so as to access the content in question. The feature shall be activated at once, so in case you attempt to open the folder/website, you'll be prompted to enter the login credentials. You can set up or remove multiple usernames for the very same folder, if needed. If you go to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be marked with a small padlock icon.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall be able to protect any content that you have uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's part of, so you will not need to enter any code at any time. You will only need to select one of the domains/subdomains that you have in the website hosting account and to pick which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then enter the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be good to go. The protection will be activated at once, so anyone who tries to access the newly secured folder shall have to input the right login info. When various people should be able to access exactly the same content, you can create a separate username for each of them.
