If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to activate password protection for a particular folder - either the primary website folder or another one below it. If this option is activated, a pop-up shall appear each time somebody attempts 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 protected only the domain.com folder. If the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no way to get around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody shall be able access the shielded content. The feature could be useful in various scenarios - if only some people must be able to see specific files, if you work on an Internet site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Website Hosting

All of our Linux website hosting packages come with a very handy tool which will permit you to shield any folder in your account from unauthorized access with simply 2 clicks. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia web hosting CP, you will just have to visit the Password Protection section, to choose the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which should be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type the username and the password that must be used so as to access the content in question. The function shall be turned on at once, so if you make an effort to open the folder/website, you'll be prompted to enter the login credentials. You may set up or remove multiple usernames for the exact same folder, if needed. When you go to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be shown with a little padlock icon.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall be able to create password protection for any content which you have inside your semi-dedicated server account. We have included an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel via which you will be able to switch on the function with a few mouse clicks and with no troubles, even if you are not quite tech-savvy. You will simply need to select the hostname (domain or subdomain), the exact folder that has to be secured (the main folder or a subfolder) and the login name and password. The protection will take effect at once, so if you make an effort to open the password-protected URL within your web browser, you'll need to input the newly created login details in order to proceed. You will also be able to give different usernames for the very same folder to a number of people, so you'll not need to share the same login credentials with everyone. Each password-protected folder shall have a small padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you will be able to recognize this type of folders easily.
