If you would like keep some content hidden from the public eye, you can enable password protection for a certain folder - either the main site folder or a different one below it. When this option is activated, a pop-up will appear anytime somebody attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured only the domain.com folder. If the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no method of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that no one will be able to access the secured content. The feature could be beneficial in a number of situations - if only some people need to be able to see certain files, if you are developing a website and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so on.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Web Hosting
With the password protection tool supplied with each shared web hosting plan which we offer, you'll be able to protect any content that you have inside your account with only a few clicks. Due to the fact that the tool is an element of our revolutionary Hepsia Control Panel, it features the exact same uncomplicated interface and you'll not need any special skills to use it. Once you check out the Password Protection section, you will need to select one of the domains or subdomains which you have in the account and then decide if the protection should be turned on for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then type in the username and the password you want and you will be ready. A little padlock symbol in the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the very same way you will be able to include multiple 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 Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall be able to shield any content which you have uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it is part of, so you'll not need to input any code at any time. You'll only have to choose one of the domains/subdomains you have in the hosting account and to select which folder should be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You can then type in the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be good to go. The protection shall be turned on at once, so anyone that attempts to access the freshly protected folder shall have to type in the right login details. In cases where several people should be able to open precisely the same content, you could make a separate username for each one.
