If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you can activate password protection for a certain folder - either the primary website folder or any other one below it. When this option is active, a pop-up will appear each time 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 necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured only the domain.com folder. When the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any method of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that nobody will be able to access the shielded content. The feature can be helpful in a number of situations - if only a number of people must be able to see specific files, if you are creating a website and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so on.

Password Protected Directories in Hosting

With the password protection tool supplied with every hosting plan that we offer, you will be able to secure any content which you have in your account with merely a few mouse clicks. Since the tool is an element of our innovative Hepsia CP, it features the same uncomplicated interface and you shall not require any special skills to use it. When you go to the Password Protection section, you'll need to pick one of the domains or subdomains that you have in the account and then decide if the protection should be active for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password that you'd like and you'll be all set. A small padlock symbol in the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the exact same way you shall be able to include multiple 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 Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall be able to protect any content you have uploaded via our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it is a part of, so you shall not need to type in any code at any time. You'll simply need to select one of the domains/subdomains which you have in the website hosting account and to select which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can input the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be all set. The protection will be switched on straightaway, so anybody who tries to access the freshly secured folder will have to enter the right login details. When several people must be able to access exactly the same content, you could set up a separate username for each.
