If you'd like to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you are able to switch on password protection for a given folder - either the primary Internet site folder or any other one below it. If this feature is activated, a pop-up will appear each and every time someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured only the domain.com folder. In case the credentials are not 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 protected content. The option can be helpful in a variety of scenarios - if only some individuals must be able to see certain files, if you are building an Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Web Hosting

With the password protection tool provided with every single cloud web hosting package which we offer, you'll be able to secure any content that you have within your account with merely a few mouse clicks. Since the tool is a component of our ground breaking Hepsia Control Panel, it features the same simple interface and you shall not need any special skills to use it. As soon as you go to the Password Protection section, you'll have to select one of the domains or subdomains which you have in the account and then choose if the protection should be active for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then enter the username and the password that you'd like and you shall be all set. A small padlock icon in the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the same way you'll be able to include numerous usernames and passwords for the same folder if you'd like several people to have their own login credentials.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall be able to shield any content that you have uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it's a part of, so you shall not need to enter any code at any time. You'll only need to choose one of the domains/subdomains that you have inside the hosting account and to pick which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then input the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be good to go. The protection will be enabled straightaway, so anybody who attempts to access the freshly secured folder will have to enter the correct login details. When various individuals have to be able to open exactly the same content, you could set up a separate username for each.
