If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could activate password protection for a given folder - either the primary website folder or another one below it. When this option is activated, a pop-up shall appear each time anyone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured just the domain.com folder. When the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no way to get around this restriction, so you can be sure that no one will be able to access the secured content. The feature may be helpful in various situations - if only some individuals 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, etc.
Password Protected Directories in Web Hosting
When you use any of our web hosting solutions, you can make password-protected areas without difficulty even if you don't have any experience with this type of matters. We've incorporated an extremely easy-to-use point-and-click tool in the Hepsia Control Panel, offered with all accounts, so you'll be able to protect any folder within just seconds. You will have to choose a domain or a subdomain and the exact folder that must be protected (the main one or a subfolder), and then to type the preferred username and password that'll be used to access the folder in question when you need it. Each and every protected folder shall have padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see easily what content is secured and what's not. If required, you can make a number of sets of login details for exactly the same folder.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to set up password protection for any content which you have in your semi-dedicated server account. We have added an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel through which you shall be able to switch on the function with a number of mouse clicks and without any difficulties, even if you're not really tech-savvy. You'll simply need to pick the hostname (domain or subdomain), the specific folder which needs to be secured (the primary folder or a subfolder) and the login name and password. The protection will take effect right away, so if you attempt to open the password-protected URL within your browser, you'll need to input the newly created login details before you proceed. You'll also be able to give different usernames for the same folder to a number of individuals, so you will not need to share the same login credentials with anyone. Any password-protected folder will have a little padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you will be able to recognize this sort of folders with ease.
