If you wish to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you are able to enable password protection for a particular folder - either the primary Internet site folder or another one below it. In case this feature is activated, a pop-up shall appear each time a person tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login info will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured only the domain.com folder. When the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any method of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The option may be useful in a number of scenarios - if only some people must be able to see specific files, if you are building an Internet site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, etc.

Password Protected Directories in Web Hosting

With the password protection tool supplied with each web hosting package that we offer, you shall be able to protect any content which you have within your account with merely a few clicks. As the tool is a component of our ground breaking Hepsia CP, it provides the same uncomplicated interface and you shall not need any special skills to use it. As soon as you visit the Password Protection section, you will need to choose one of the domains or subdomains you have within the account and then choose if the protection should be turned on for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type in the username and the password that you'd like and you'll be set. A little padlock icon inside the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the very same way you will be able to add a number of 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 Servers

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