If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can activate password protection for a specific folder - either the primary Internet site folder or another one below it. If this feature is turned on, a pop-up shall appear anytime a person attempts 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 when you have secured only the domain.com folder. If the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any way of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one will be able to access the shielded content. The feature may be beneficial in various scenarios - if only a number of people need to be able to see certain files, if you are building a site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, etc.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Website Hosting
If you use any of our shared website hosting products, you'll be able to create password-protected areas easily even if you don't have any experience with this type of matters. We've included an incredibly easy-to-use point-and-click tool into the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all accounts, so you will be able to protect any folder within merely seconds. You'll simply have to choose a domain or a subdomain and the exact folder that has to be protected (the main one or a subfolder), and then to type in the preferred username and password which will be used to access the folder in question at some point. Any secured folder shall have padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you will be able to see at a glance what content is protected and what is not. If necessary, you can make a number of sets of login details for precisely the same folder.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to secure any content that you've uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it's a part of, so you will not have to type in any code at any time. You will simply have to pick one of the domains/subdomains that you have inside the web hosting account and to determine which folder must be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You can then type in 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 at once, so anybody who tries to access the newly secured folder shall have to enter the correct login info. If several individuals should be able to open exactly the same content, you could make a separate username for each.
