If you would like keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to switch on password protection for a given folder - either the primary site folder or any other one below it. When this option is enabled, a pop-up will appear each time somebody attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected just the domain.com folder. If the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no method of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one will be able to access the secured content. The option could be useful in a variety of situations - if only certain people must be able to see certain files, if you are developing a site and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, and so on.

Password Protected Directories in Hosting

With the password protection tool provided with each hosting package deal which we offer, you'll be able to protect any content that you have within your account with simply a few clicks. Due to the fact that the tool is part of our ground breaking Hepsia CP, it features exactly the same uncomplicated interface and you shall not require any special skills to use it. Once you navigate to the Password Protection section, you'll have to pick one of the domains or subdomains that you have inside the account and then choose if the protection should be turned on for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password that you'd like and you'll be set. A small padlock symbol in the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the exact same way you'll be able to add a number of usernames and passwords for the same folder if you would like several people to have their own login credentials.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to set up password protection for any content that you have within your semi-dedicated server account. We've added an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel where you shall be able to switch on the function with a few mouse clicks and without any difficulties, even if you are not very tech-savvy. You will only have to select the hostname (domain or subdomain), the exact folder that must be secured (the primary folder or a subfolder) as well as the login name and password. The protection shall take effect instantaneously, so if you make an attempt to open the password-protected URL inside your browser, you will need to type the newly created login details before you can proceed. You'll 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 anyone. Any password-protected folder will have a tiny padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you shall be able to recognize this kind of folders with ease.
