If you'd like to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to enable password protection for a certain folder - either the primary Internet site folder or a different one below it. In case this option is enabled, a pop-up will appear each 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 shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured only the domain.com folder. If the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall 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 secured content. The option can be beneficial in a number of cases - if only certain individuals need to be able to see specific files, if you are developing a website and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, etc.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

With the password protection tool that comes with each cloud hosting package which we offer, you'll be able to protect any content which you have inside your account with merely a few mouse clicks. As the tool is part of our revolutionary Hepsia CP, it provides the exact same simple interface and you will not require any special skills to use it. As soon as you visit the Password Protection section, you will need to choose one of the domains or subdomains you have within the account and then decide whether the protection should be switched on for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password that you want and you'll be all set. A little padlock icon within the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the very same way you will be able to include many 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 Servers

You will be able to set up password protection for any content you have inside your semi-dedicated server account. We've added an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel via which you will be able to enable the function with a few clicks and with no difficulties, even if you're not very tech-savvy. You will only need to select the hostname (domain or subdomain), the exact folder which should be protected (the primary folder or a subfolder) as well as the login name and password. The protection shall take effect right away, so if you attempt to open the password-protected URL in your browser, you will need to type the newly created login credentials before you proceed. Additionally, you'll be able to give different usernames for the very same folder to a number of individuals, so you'll not need to share the same login details with everybody. Any password-protected folder shall have a compact padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you shall be able to recognize such folders easily.
