If you would like keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can switch on password protection for a specific folder - either the primary Internet site folder or a different one below it. Whenever this feature is active, a pop-up shall appear each time somebody attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured the domain.com folder. If the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any way to get around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody shall be able access the secured content. The option could be useful in a variety of situations - if only certain individuals should be able to see specific files, if you are building an Internet site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Web Hosting

All of our Linux cloud web hosting packages feature a very convenient tool which will allow you to protect any folder inside your account from unauthorized access with only 2 clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia hosting CP, you will only have to navigate to the Password Protection section, to choose the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which needs to be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type in the username and the password that have to be used to access the content in question. The function will be turned on immediately, so if you make an effort to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to input the login credentials. You may set up or remove many usernames for the very same folder, when necessary. When you navigate to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be indicated by a compact 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 shield any content that you have uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's a part of, so you will not have to enter any code at any time. You'll simply have to select one of the domains/subdomains which you have inside the web hosting account and to choose which folder should be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. After that you can type the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be ready. The protection will be switched on at once, so anybody who attempts to access the newly protected folder will have to type in the accurate login information. In cases where several people must be able to open precisely the same content, you could set up a separate username for each.
