If you would like keep some content hidden from the public eye, you can enable password protection for a specific folder - either the primary Internet site folder or any other one below it. If this function is active, a pop-up shall appear each and every time somebody tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured only the domain.com folder. If the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any way to get around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one shall be able access the shielded content. The function can be helpful in a variety of scenarios - if only certain individuals must be able to see specific 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 Hosting

When you use any of our hosting solutions, you can create password-protected areas with ease even if you don't have any experience with this type of matters. We have incorporated a very easy-to-use point-and-click tool into the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts, so you will be able to shield any folder within merely seconds. You'll only have to select a domain or a subdomain and the particular folder which should be secured (the main one or a subfolder), and then to type the desired username and password which will be used to access the folder in question when you need it. Each and every protected folder will have a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see at a glance what content is protected and what is not. When necessary, you can make a number of different sets of login credentials for exactly the same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall be able to shield any content that you have uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it is part of, so you'll not have to enter any code at any time. You'll simply have to choose one of the domains/subdomains that you have inside the website hosting account and to determine which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then input the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be all set. The protection shall be switched on instantly, so anyone who tries to access the recently secured folder will have to input the accurate login details. If a number of individuals have to be able to open the same content, you can create a separate username for each of them.
