If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you are able to enable password protection for a specific folder - either the primary website folder or a different one below it. When this feature is turned on, a pop-up will appear each and every time someone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured just the domain.com folder. When the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no method of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody shall be able access the shielded content. The option may be beneficial in various cases - if only a number of people need to be able to see specific files, if you are creating a site and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Web Hosting

If you use any of our web hosting plans, you shall be able to make password-protected areas without difficulty even if you don't have any experience with such matters. We've integrated an extremely easy-to-use point-and-click tool into the Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with all accounts, so you'll be able to secure any folder within a matter of seconds. You will have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the exact folder that must be protected (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to enter the preferred username and password which will be used to access the folder in question at some point. Every secured folder shall have padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you will be able to see immediately what content is secured and what's not. When necessary, you can create a number of different sets of login details for the exact same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to shield any content that you've uploaded using our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it is part of, so you shall not need to type in any code at any time. You'll simply need to pick 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 may then enter the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be all set. The protection will be turned on immediately, so anyone who attempts to access the recently secured folder will have to input the accurate login information. When several people must be able to access exactly the same content, you could set up a separate username for each one.
