If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you could enable password protection for a particular folder - either the primary site folder or any other one below it. When this option is turned on, a pop-up will appear each and every time someone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected only the domain.com folder. If the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any way to get around this restriction, so you can be positive that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The feature can be beneficial in a number of cases - if only some individuals need to be able to see specific files, if you are building a website and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Hosting

When you use any of our hosting plans, you'll be able to set up password-protected areas without difficulty even if you don't have any experience with this sort of matters. We've built in an incredibly easy-to-use point-and-click tool into the Hepsia Control Panel, offered with all accounts, so you shall be able to protect any folder within just a few seconds. You will simply have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the exact folder that must be secured (the main one or a subfolder), and then to enter the preferred username and password that will be used to access the folder in question later on. Each and every secured folder shall have padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you shall be able to see instantly what content is protected and what's not. When necessary, you can make several different sets of login details for the same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to create password protection for any content which you have in your semi-dedicated server account. We've integrated an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel through which you will be able to enable the function with a few mouse clicks and without any troubles, even if you are not very tech-savvy. You will simply need to select the hostname (domain or subdomain), the specific folder that should be protected (the main folder or a subfolder) and the login name and password. The protection shall take effect immediately, so if you attempt to open the password-protected URL in your web browser, you'll need to input the newly created login credentials before you proceed. You will also be able to give different usernames for the same folder to a number of individuals, so you will not have to share the same login details with anybody. Any password-protected folder shall have a compact padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you'll be able to recognize this type of folders in no time.
