If you'd like to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could enable password protection for a certain folder - either the main site folder or another one below it. When this function is activated, a pop-up will appear each time somebody tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected the domain.com folder. When 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 sure that nobody shall be able access the secured content. The option could be helpful in a variety of cases - if only some 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, and so on.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

With the password protection tool that is included with every single cloud hosting package that we provide, you shall be able to shield any content that you have within your account with just a few mouse clicks. As the tool is an element of our revolutionary Hepsia CP, it features the exact same simple interface and you will not require any special skills to use it. When you navigate to the Password Protection section, you'll need to select one of the domains or subdomains which you have within the account and then choose if the protection should be active for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then enter the username and the password that you would like and you shall be ready. A tiny padlock icon in the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the exact same way you shall be able to include a number of usernames and passwords for the same folder if you would 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 which you have within your semi-dedicated server account. We have added an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel where you shall be able to enable the function with a few clicks and without any problems, even if you are not quite tech-savvy. You will only need to choose the hostname (domain or subdomain), the exact folder that needs to be secured (the primary folder or a subfolder) plus the login name and password. The protection shall take effect instantly, so if you attempt to open the password-protected URL in your browser, you will need to input the newly created login credentials before you can proceed. Additionally, you'll be able to give different usernames for the very same folder to a number of people, so you'll not have to share the same login credentials with everyone. Each password-protected folder shall have a compact padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you will be able to recognize this kind of folders with ease.
