If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can enable password protection for a certain folder - either the primary Internet site folder or a different one below it. If this option is activated, a pop-up will appear each and every time a person tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected only the domain.com folder. When the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any method of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one will be able to access the shielded content. The function can be beneficial in a variety of situations - if only a number of individuals should be able to see specific files, if you work on an Internet site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, etc.

Password Protected Directories in Web Hosting

With the password protection tool that comes with each web hosting plan which we offer, you'll be able to shield any content that you have in your account with only a few clicks. Since the tool is an element of our innovative Hepsia CP, it provides the same uncomplicated interface and you shall not require any special skills to use it. When you navigate to the Password Protection section, you will have to select one of the domains or subdomains you have in the account and then decide whether the protection should be switched on for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type in the username and the password that you want and you will be set. A little padlock symbol inside the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the same exact way you'll be able to include several 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 Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall be able to secure any content which you have uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it is part of, so you'll not have to enter any code at any time. You will only need to choose one of the domains/subdomains you have inside the hosting account and to determine which folder should be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can type the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be good to go. The protection shall be enabled instantly, so anybody who attempts to access the freshly protected folder will have to input the accurate login info. In cases where various individuals must be able to open precisely the same content, you can create a separate username for each of them.
