If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you are able to activate password protection for a given folder - either the main site folder or any other one below it. If this option is activated, a pop-up will appear each and every time a person attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if 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 way to get around this restriction, so you can rest assured that nobody will be able to access the shielded content. The function could be beneficial in various scenarios - if only a few individuals need to be able to see certain files, if you are developing a site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so on.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

All of our cloud plans include a very convenient tool that will permit you to protect any folder within your account from unauthorized access with simply two clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia web hosting CP, you will only have to navigate to the Password Protection section, to select the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which has to be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type in the username and the password which should be used to access the content in question. The function shall be turned on straightaway, so if you try to open the folder/website, you'll be prompted to enter the login info. You can set up or remove a number of usernames for the very same folder, when necessary. If you check out the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be marked with a small padlock icon.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to shield any content that you've uploaded via our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's part of, so you shall not have to type in any code at any time. You'll simply need to pick one of the domains/subdomains which you have in the web hosting account and to determine which folder should be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. After that you can input the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be good to go. The protection will be activated instantly, so anyone who tries to access the recently protected folder will have to enter the correct login details. If various individuals must be able to open exactly the same content, you could set up a separate username for each of them.
