If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you can activate password protection for a specific folder - either the main Internet site folder or any other one below it. If this function is active, a pop-up shall 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 info will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected only the domain.com folder. In case the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no way to get around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody shall be able access the shielded content. The option may be beneficial in a number of situations - if only certain people need to be able to see particular files, if you work on an Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, and so on.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

All of our Linux cloud hosting include an incredibly handy tool which will enable you to secure any folder within your account from unauthorized access with just two clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia website hosting CP, you'll just have to visit the Password Protection section, to pick the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which has to be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type in the username and the password that must be used to access the content in question. The feature shall be active at once, so if you try to open the folder/website, you will be prompted to type in the login credentials. You could create or remove a number of usernames for the very same folder, when necessary. When you navigate to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be shown with a compact padlock icon.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Securing any folder with a password will be very easy if you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account with us. A user-friendly tool, that is built into the Hepsia CP, will permit you to pick the particular folder that you want to protect with a couple of clicks and all you'll have to type in will be the username and the password which will be used to access it subsequently. You will not experience any complications even if you have never had a web hosting account before, considering that you do not need any previous knowledge or programming skills to activate the function. If you repeat the same very simple steps, you'll be able to set up many usernames for the same password-protected area, so a number of people will be able to access a particular folder with their own login details. You will be able to see the secured folders at a glance either in the exact same section of the Control Panel or inside the File Manager section where you shall recognize them by their tiny padlock icons.
