If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you can activate password protection for a specific folder - either the main site folder or any other one below it. When this function is enabled, a pop-up will appear each and every time somebody tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured only the domain.com folder. In case the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any way of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that no one shall be able access the shielded content. The function could be useful in a number of scenarios - if only certain people must be able to see specific files, if you work on a site and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, and so on.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Website Hosting
All of our cloud website hosting services feature an exceptionally handy tool that'll allow you to shield any folder in your account from unauthorized access with only two clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll just have to go to the Password Protection section, to select the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that should be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to enter the username and the password which have to be used in order to access the content in question. The function shall be activated at once, so if you make an effort to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to type in the login information. You could create or remove numerous 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 tiny padlock icon.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Protecting any folder with a password will be easy if you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account with our company. A user-friendly tool, that is incorporated into the Hepsia Control Panel, will permit you to pick the specific folder you would like to secure with a few mouse clicks and all you'll have to enter shall be the username and the password that'll be used to access it afterwards. You will not experience any issues even if you haven't had a web hosting account before, because you do not need any previous knowledge or computer programming skills to enable the feature. If you repeat the same very simple steps, you will be able to set up many usernames for the exact same password-protected area, so a number of people will be able to access a certain folder with their own login credentials. You shall be able to see the protected folders easily either in precisely the same section of the Control Panel or in the File Manager section where you'll identify them by their little padlock icons.
