If you'd like to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could enable password protection for a specific folder - either the main site folder or any other one below it. In case this function is enabled, 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 shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected just the domain.com folder. If the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no way to get around this restriction, so you can be positive that nobody shall be able access the shielded content. The option may be helpful in a number of scenarios - if only a number of people should be able to see specific files, if you are building an Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, etc.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Web Hosting
All our cloud web hosting include an exceptionally convenient tool that'll enable you to shield any folder in your account from unauthorized access with just 2 mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia website hosting CP, you will only have to go to the Password Protection section, to pick the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which has to be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to input the username and the password that have to be used to access the content in question. The feature will be turned on right away, so in case you try to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to input the login information. You may set up or remove many usernames for the exact same folder, if necessary. If you go to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be marked with a small padlock icon.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Securing any folder with a password will be quite simple if you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account with us. A user-friendly tool, that is integrated into the Hepsia Control Panel, will enable you to choose the particular folder which you want to protect with a few clicks and all you'll have to type in shall be the username and the password that'll be used to access it afterwards. You won't encounter any troubles even if you haven't had a web hosting account before, since you don't need any previous knowledge or computer programming skills to enable the feature. If you repeat the same very simple steps, you shall be able to set up different usernames for the exact same password-protected area, so many people will be able to access a particular folder with their own login credentials. You will be able to see the protected folders instantly either in the very same section of the Control Panel or within the File Manager section where you will detect them by their little padlock icons.
