If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to switch on password protection for a given folder - either the main website folder or any other one below it. If this option is enabled, a pop-up shall appear anytime someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected only the domain.com folder. When the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no way to get around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody will be able to access the protected content. The feature could be beneficial in a variety of scenarios - if only a few people must be able to see particular files, if you are developing a site and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, and so on.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Website Hosting

Setting up a password-protected area shall take only a few clicks and a few seconds if you host your sites inside a cloud website hosting account with our company. You will not have to do anything complex - you'll have to choose a domain/subdomain, to select which folder under it must be secured, and then to type in the login name and password that will be used to access that folder. If a number of people need their own login details, there will not be a problem to make a number of different usernames with access to the very same folder. All secured folders will appear with a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you'll always know where this feature is enabled. If you would like to deactivate the security function for any folder, you can deactivate it from the same exact section of the CP where you have enabled it.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall be able to create password protection for any content you have within your semi-dedicated server account. We have included an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel using which you shall be able to switch on the feature with several clicks and with no problems, even if you are not really tech-savvy. You will only need to choose the hostname (domain or subdomain), the specific folder that should be secured (the primary folder or a subfolder) and 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 need to input the newly created login details before you can proceed. Additionally, you'll be able to give different usernames for the exact same folder to a number of people, so you'll not have to share the same login credentials with anyone. Any password-protected folder shall have a tiny padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you shall be able to recognize this kind of folders easily.
