If you wish to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to activate password protection for a particular folder - either the primary site folder or any other one below it. Whenever this function is enabled, a pop-up shall appear each and every time someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected only the domain.com folder. If the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no way to get around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody will be able to access the shielded content. The option may be useful in a variety of cases - if only a few people should be able to see particular files, if you are developing a website and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Website Hosting

Creating a password-protected area shall take just a couple of clicks and a few seconds if you host your Internet sites inside a cloud website hosting account with us. You'll not need to do anything challenging - you'll have to pick a domain/subdomain, to select which folder under it should be protected, and then to type the login name and password which will be used to access that folder. If a number of people require their own login details, there shall not be a problem to set up several different usernames with access to the same exact folder. All secured folders will appear with a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you shall always know where this function is active. If you'd like to disable the protection feature for any folder, you can disable it from the same exact section of the CP in which you have enabled it.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to create password protection for any content that you have within your semi-dedicated server account. We have included an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel through which you shall be able to enable the feature with a few mouse clicks and with no complications, even if you are not quite tech-savvy. You'll simply need to choose the hostname (domain or subdomain), the exact folder that must be protected (the main folder or a subfolder) plus the login name and password. The protection shall take effect instantaneously, so if you make an attempt to open the password-protected URL inside your browser, you'll have to enter the newly created login credentials before you proceed. You'll also be able to give different usernames for the exact same folder to a number of people, so you will not have to share the same login details with anyone. Each password-protected folder shall have a little padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you'll be able to recognize such folders easily.
