If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you are able to enable password protection for a certain folder - either the main Internet site folder or any other one below it. If this feature is activated, a pop-up shall appear each time somebody tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login details will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected just the domain.com folder. In case the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any way of getting around this restriction, so you can be sure that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The feature could be useful in a variety of scenarios - if only a number of individuals need to be able to see particular files, if you work on a site and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so on.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Website Hosting

With the password protection tool provided with every single cloud website hosting package deal which we offer, you shall be able to protect any content which you have in your account with just a few clicks. Because the tool is an element of our ground breaking Hepsia CP, it has the same simple interface and you shall not require any special skills to use it. When you check out the Password Protection section, you'll have to choose one of the domains or subdomains which you have inside the account and then decide whether the protection should be activated for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password that you would like and you will be all set. A small padlock symbol within the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the same way you shall be able to add numerous usernames and passwords for the same folder if you want several people to have their own login credentials.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to create password protection for any content which you have within your semi-dedicated server account. We have integrated an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you will be able to activate the feature with a number of mouse clicks and with no difficulties, even if you are not very tech-savvy. You will simply need to pick the hostname (domain or subdomain), the particular folder which has to be secured (the primary folder or a subfolder) as well as the login name and password. The protection shall take effect immediately, so if you make an effort to open the password-protected URL inside your browser, you'll need to input the newly created login credentials before you proceed. You will also be able to give different usernames for the exact same folder to a number of people, so you will not need to share the same login credentials with everybody. Each password-protected folder will have a compact padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you shall be able to recognize such folders in no time.
