If you'd like to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you are able to activate password protection for a specific folder - either the primary website folder or a different one below it. If this option is turned on, a pop-up shall 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 details will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected only the domain.com folder. If the credentials are not 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 feature could be useful in a number of scenarios - if only a few individuals must be able to see certain files, if you are building a website and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, etc.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting
With the password protection tool provided with every single shared hosting
package deal that we offer, you will be able to secure any content that you have within your account with merely a few mouse clicks. Since the tool is an element of our innovative Hepsia CP, it features exactly the same uncomplicated interface and you will not require any special skills to use it. As soon as you go to the Password Protection section, you will need to choose one of the domains or subdomains which you have in the account and then choose if the protection should be turned on for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password that you'd like and you'll be all set to go. A small padlock symbol inside the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the same way you will be able to include many usernames and passwords for the same folder if you want several people to have their own login credentials.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall 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 through which you shall be able to enable the feature with several mouse clicks and without any troubles, even if you're not really tech-savvy. You'll simply have to select the hostname (domain or subdomain), the exact folder which needs to be protected (the main folder or a subfolder) as well as the login name and password. The protection will take effect at once, so if you make an attempt to open the password-protected URL within your web browser, you'll need to type in the newly created login details before you can proceed. You will also be able to give different usernames for the same folder to a number of people, so you'll not need to share the same login credentials with anyone. Any password-protected folder shall have a little padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you will be able to recognize such folders in no time.
