If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you'll be able to enable password protection for a certain folder - either the primary website folder or any other one below it. In case this function is activated, a pop-up shall appear every time somebody tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected the domain.com folder. If the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The function may be beneficial in a number of scenarios - if only a few people must be able to see specific files, if you are creating an Internet site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so on.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting
Setting up a password-protected area shall take only a couple of clicks and a few seconds when you host your websites in a shared hosting account with our company. You shall not need to do anything complex - you will have to pick a domain/subdomain, to choose which folder under it should 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 require their own login credentials, there won't be a problem to set up numerous different usernames with access to the same folder. All protected folders shall appear with a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you will always know where this feature is active. If you would like to disable the security feature 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 Servers
You will be able to create password protection for any content you have inside your semi-dedicated server account. We have integrated an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel where you will be able to switch on the feature with a few clicks and with no complications, even if you are not quite tech-savvy. You will simply have to select the hostname (domain or subdomain), the particular folder that should be secured (the primary folder or a subfolder) plus the login name and password. The protection will take effect instantaneously, so if you attempt to open the password-protected URL within your Internet browser, you'll have to type in the newly created login credentials before you can proceed. Additionally, you will be able to give different usernames for the exact same folder to a number of individuals, so you'll not have to share the same login credentials with anybody. Any password-protected folder shall have a small padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you'll be able to recognize this kind of folders in no time.
