If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could enable password protection for a given folder - either the primary website folder or any other one below it. Whenever this option 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 information will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have protected the domain.com folder. If the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any method of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody will be able to access the protected content. The feature can be beneficial in various scenarios - if only a number of people should be able to see certain files, if you are developing a site and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Web Hosting

Setting up a password-protected area will take no more than a couple of mouse clicks and a few seconds when you host your Internet sites within a web hosting account with our company. You shall not have to do anything difficult - you'll have to pick a domain/subdomain, to pick which folder under it must be protected, and then to enter the login name and password that will be used to access that folder. When a number of people require their own login credentials, there shall not be a problem to make a number of different usernames with access to the exact same folder. All secured folders will appear with a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you'll always know where this function is activated. If you would like to turn off the protection function for any folder, you can deactivate it from the very same 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 in your semi-dedicated server account. We've integrated an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel through which you will be able to activate the feature with a number of mouse clicks and with no problems, even if you are not quite tech-savvy. You'll simply have to pick the hostname (domain or subdomain), the particular folder which should be secured (the main folder or a subfolder) and the login name and password. The protection shall take effect at once, so if you make an attempt to open the password-protected URL inside your web browser, you will have to type the newly created login details in order to proceed. Additionally, you will be able to give different usernames for the exact same folder to a number of individuals, so you'll not need to share the same login credentials with everyone. Each password-protected folder shall have a little padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you shall be able to recognize this sort of folders with ease.
