If you wish to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you could switch on password protection for a certain folder - either the main site folder or a different one below it. Whenever this option is turned on, a pop-up will appear each and every time a person tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured the domain.com folder. In case the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any way to get around this restriction, so you can be positive that nobody will be able to access the shielded content. The feature can be beneficial in various cases - if only certain individuals should be able to see specific files, if you are building a site and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Website Hosting

With the password protection tool that comes with every single shared website hosting package which we provide, you will be able to protect any content which you have inside your account with only a few clicks. As the tool is an element of our revolutionary Hepsia CP, it offers exactly the same uncomplicated interface and you'll not need 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 inside the account and then choose 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 will be all set to go. A little padlock icon inside the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the same exact way you shall be able to include numerous 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

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to secure any content which 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 shall not need to input any code at any time. You'll simply have to select one of the domains/subdomains that you have inside the web hosting account and to select which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. After that you can enter the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be all set. The protection will be enabled straightaway, so anybody who attempts to access the freshly secured folder shall have to type in the right login info. When various individuals have to be able to open precisely the same content, you could make a separate username for each.
