If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you are able to switch on password protection for a specific folder - either the main website folder or any other one below it. When this function is active, a pop-up shall appear each and every time somebody attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured the domain.com folder. If the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one shall be able access the secured content. The feature can be beneficial in a variety of scenarios - if only a number of people need to be able to see specific files, if you are developing an Internet site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, etc.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Web Hosting
If you use any of our cloud web hosting products, you'll be able to create password-protected areas effortlessly even if you don't have any experience with this kind of matters. We've included an incredibly easy-to-use point-and-click tool within the Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with all accounts, so you shall be able to shield any folder within a matter of seconds. You'll only have to choose a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder which has to be secured (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to type in the preferred username and password which will be used to access the folder in question in the future. Each secured folder shall have padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you will be able to see at a glance what content is protected and what's not. If needed, you can make several different sets of login details for precisely the same folder.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to protect any content you have uploaded via our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it's part of, so you will not need to type in any code at any time. You will simply need to select one of the domains/subdomains which you have in the web hosting account and to pick which folder must be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then input the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be ready. The protection will be switched on at once, so anybody who tries to access the newly protected folder will have to type in the correct login details. In cases where a number of individuals must be able to access the exact same content, you could set up a separate username for each of them.
