If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you are able to activate password protection for a specific folder - either the primary Internet site folder or any other one below it. In case this feature is turned on, a pop-up shall appear every time someone 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 secured only the domain.com folder. If the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no method of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The feature may be useful in a variety of cases - if only some individuals should be able to see specific files, if you are building a site and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, and so on.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Web Hosting

With the password protection tool that comes with each and every cloud web hosting package deal which we offer, you shall be able to secure any content that you have inside your account with only a few clicks. As the tool is part of our revolutionary Hepsia CP, it features exactly the same simple interface and you'll not need any special skills to use it. When you go to the Password Protection section, you'll need to choose one of the domains or subdomains you have within the account and then decide if the protection should be turned on for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then enter the username and the password that you would like and you'll be set. A tiny padlock symbol within the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the same way you will be able to add numerous usernames and passwords for the same folder if you would like several people to have their own login credentials.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to create password protection for any content that you have inside your semi-dedicated server account. We've included an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel using which you will be able to activate the function with a number of clicks and without any difficulties, even if you are not really tech-savvy. You will only need to choose the hostname (domain or subdomain), the exact folder which needs to be protected (the main folder or a subfolder) as well as the login name and password. The protection shall take effect instantaneously, so if you make an effort to open the password-protected URL in your Internet browser, you'll have to type in the newly created login credentials in order to proceed. Additionally, you will be able to give different usernames for the very same folder to a number of individuals, so you'll not need to share the same login credentials with everyone. Any password-protected folder shall have a small padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you will be able to recognize this type of folders in no time.
