If you'd like to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can switch on password protection for a certain folder - either the primary site folder or any other one below it. Whenever this function is active, a pop-up shall appear each time someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected the domain.com folder. When the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no way to get around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one shall be able access the shielded content. The feature may be helpful in a number of cases - if only some individuals must be able to see specific files, if you work on a website and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, and so on.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Website Hosting

Creating a password-protected area shall take only several clicks and a few seconds if you host your websites inside a shared website hosting account with us. You will not need to do anything difficult - you will need to choose a domain/subdomain, to pick which folder under it should be secured, and then to type the login name and password which will be used to access that folder. In case a number of individuals require their own login details, there won't be a problem to set up numerous different usernames with access to the exact same folder. All secured folders shall appear with a padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you shall always know where this option is active. If you'd like to turn off the protection feature for any folder, you can deactivate it from the exact same section of the CP where you have enabled it.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to protect any content you have uploaded via 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 have to enter any code at any time. You will simply have to pick one of the domains/subdomains 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. After that you can type in the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be ready. The protection shall be switched on right away, so anyone that attempts to access the freshly secured folder will have to enter the accurate login details. In cases where various people should be able to open exactly the same content, you can create a separate username for each.
