If you'd like to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to enable password protection for a particular folder - either the main Internet site folder or another one below it. When this function is activated, a pop-up shall appear anytime a person attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected only the domain.com folder. When the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no method of getting around this restriction, so you can be sure that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The function may be useful in a variety of situations - if only some people need to be able to see certain files, if you are developing a site and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Web Hosting

With the password protection tool provided with every single cloud web hosting package which we offer, you will be able to shield any content which you have in your account with just a few clicks. Due to the fact that the tool is an element of our innovative Hepsia CP, it features the same uncomplicated interface and you will not need any special skills to use it. As soon as you navigate to the Password Protection section, you'll have to choose one of the domains or subdomains that you have in the account and then choose if the protection should be activated for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password that you'd like and you will be ready. A little padlock symbol within the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the very same way you will be able to include multiple 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 us, you shall be able to protect 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 a part of, so you will not have to type in any code at any time. You'll simply have to choose one of the domains/subdomains that you have in the web hosting account and to choose which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. After that you can input the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be all set. The protection shall be switched on straightaway, so anybody who tries to access the freshly secured folder shall have to enter the accurate login details. When a number of individuals must be able to access precisely the same content, you could make a separate username for each one.
