If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to enable password protection for a certain folder - either the main website folder or a different one below it. In case this function is enabled, a pop-up will appear anytime someone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured only the domain.com folder. In case the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no way of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that no one will be able to access the secured content. The function may be beneficial in a variety of scenarios - if only certain individuals should be able to see certain files, if you work on an Internet site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so on.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Website Hosting

All our cloud website hosting services include an exceptionally handy tool which will permit you to protect any folder inside your account from unauthorized access with just 2 clicks. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll simply have to go to the Password Protection section, to select the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which needs to be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type in the username and the password which have to be used so as to access the content in question. The feature will be turned on straightaway, so if you try to open the folder/website, you'll be prompted to type in the login credentials. You could create or remove a number of usernames for the same folder, if needed. When you navigate to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be indicated by a tiny padlock icon.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Securing any folder with a password will be quite simple if you host your websites inside a semi-dedicated server account with our company. A user-friendly tool, that is built into the Hepsia Control Panel, will allow you to pick the exact folder you would like to protect with a few mouse clicks and all you'll have to input will be the username and the password that will be used to access it later on. You will not encounter any issues even if you have not had a web hosting account before, because you do not need any previous knowledge or computer programming skills to switch on the feature. If you repeat the same very simple steps, you'll be able to create numerous usernames for the very same password-protected area, so many people will be able to access a given folder with their own login details. You shall be able to see the protected folders instantly either in the same section of the CP or in the File Manager section where you shall identify them by their small padlock icons.
