If you'd like to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you are able to activate password protection for a specific folder - either the primary Internet site folder or any other one below it. If this feature is enabled, a pop-up shall appear anytime anyone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected just the domain.com folder. When the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any way of getting around this restriction, so you can be sure that no one shall be able access the shielded content. The feature may be useful in various scenarios - if only a number of people need to be able to see certain files, if you work on an Internet site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

With the password protection tool that comes with every cloud hosting package deal which we provide, you will be able to protect any content which you have in your account with merely a few mouse clicks. Due to the fact that the tool is part of our innovative Hepsia Control Panel, it has exactly the same simple interface and you'll not need any special skills to use it. As soon as 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 decide if the protection should be switched on for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then type in the username and the password that you want and you'll be ready. A little padlock symbol in the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the same exact way you shall be able to include many 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 Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to protect any content you have uploaded using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is a part of, so you shall not need to enter any code at any time. You will simply have to select one of the domains/subdomains that you have inside the web hosting account and to pick which folder must be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can type the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be all set. The protection shall be turned on instantly, so anyone that attempts to access the newly protected folder shall have to enter the right login details. When various individuals must be able to access the exact same content, you could set up a separate username for each.
