If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could activate password protection for a particular folder - either the main site folder or another one below it. When this feature is active, a pop-up will appear each time a person attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured the domain.com folder. When the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be sure that nobody will be able to access the shielded content. The feature could be useful in various cases - if only a number of people must be able to see particular 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 Website Hosting

With the password protection tool provided with every single cloud website hosting package that we provide, you'll be able to shield any content which you have within your account with merely a few clicks. Since the tool is an element of our ground breaking Hepsia CP, it has the exact same simple interface and you shall not need any special skills to use it. Once you visit the Password Protection section, you will have to select one of the domains or subdomains you have in the account and then decide whether the protection should be active for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password that you want and you'll be all set. A tiny padlock symbol inside the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the very same way you shall 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 Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall be able to shield any content that you have uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is part of, so you'll not need to write any code at any time. You will only have to select one of the domains/subdomains which you have inside the web hosting account and to determine which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then type the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be good to go. The protection will be switched on instantly, so anyone who tries to access the freshly protected folder shall have to type in the accurate login details. In case several individuals must be able to access exactly the same content, you can create a separate username for each.
