If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you can enable password protection for a particular folder - either the main site folder or any other one below it. If this option is activated, a pop-up shall appear each and every time somebody attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected just the domain.com folder. In case the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any way to get around this restriction, so you can be sure that nobody shall be able access the protected content. The feature may be beneficial in a number of cases - if only a number of individuals should be able to see specific files, if you are building an Internet site and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, etc.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Web Hosting
When you use any of our shared web hosting products, you'll be able to create password-protected areas with ease even if you have no experience with this sort of matters. We have incorporated an extremely easy-to-use point-and-click tool into the Hepsia CP, which comes with all accounts, so you'll be able to secure any folder within a matter of seconds. You will only have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the particular folder which has to be protected (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to type the username and password which will be used to access the folder in question in the future. Every protected folder shall have padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you shall be able to see easily what content is protected and what is not. If needed, you could make a number of sets of login details for the exact same folder.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to protect any content which you have uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it's part of, so you will not need to enter any code at any time. You will simply need to pick one of the domains/subdomains that you have inside the web hosting account and to determine which folder must be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can type in the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be all set. The protection will be activated right away, so anybody who tries to access the newly secured folder shall have to input the accurate login details. When various individuals should be able to access precisely the same content, you can create a separate username for each.
