If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you could switch on password protection for a particular folder - either the primary Internet site folder or a different one below it. If this function is enabled, a pop-up shall appear each time a person tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured only the domain.com folder. If the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no way to get around this restriction, so you can rest assured that no one shall be able access the protected content. The option may be beneficial in a variety of situations - if only certain individuals must be able to see particular files, if you are creating a site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so on.

Password Protected Directories in Web Hosting

All of our web hosting include a really handy tool that'll enable you to shield any folder within your account from unauthorized access with just two clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia hosting CP, you'll simply have to navigate to the Password Protection section, to choose the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which has to be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type in the username and the password that should be used in order to access the content in question. The function shall be active at once, so if you try to open the folder/website, you will be prompted to type in the login details. You may set up or remove many usernames for the exact same folder, if needed. When you check out the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be marked with a compact padlock icon.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will 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 CP it is part of, so you shall not need to enter any code at any time. You'll only have to select one of the domains/subdomains that you have inside the web hosting account and to choose which folder should be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can type in the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be all set. The protection will be activated straightaway, so anyone that attempts to access the freshly protected folder shall have to input the correct login details. In cases where various people have to be able to open the exact same content, you could set up a separate username for each one.
