If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can enable password protection for a particular folder - either the main website folder or any other one below it. When this option is activated, a pop-up shall 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 the domain.com folder. When the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no way of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that no one will be able to access the shielded content. The function can be beneficial in a number of scenarios - if only a few individuals should be able to see particular files, if you are developing an Internet site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, etc.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Website Hosting

Setting up a password-protected area shall take no more than a few mouse clicks and a few seconds when you host your websites inside a cloud website hosting account with us. You shall not have to do anything complicated - you'll have to pick a domain/subdomain, to pick which folder under it should be protected, and then to enter the login name and password that'll be used to access that folder. When a number of individuals need their own login credentials, there shall not be a problem to create numerous different usernames with access to the same folder. All secured folders will appear with a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you'll always know where this option is enabled. If you'd like to turn off the security function for any folder, you can deactivate it from the same section of the CP in which you have enabled it.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to secure any content that you have 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 will not need to write any code at any time. You'll simply have to choose one of the domains/subdomains which you have inside the hosting account and to select which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can input the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be good to go. The protection will be turned on right away, so anyone that tries to access the newly protected folder shall have to type in the accurate login info. In case several people have to be able to open the same content, you can create a separate username for each of them.
