If you'd like to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you could activate password protection for a specific folder - either the main website folder or a different one below it. When this feature is turned on, a pop-up shall appear each and every time someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have protected only the domain.com folder. If the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any way of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that no one shall be able access the protected content. The feature may be useful in various situations - if only some people must be able to see certain files, if you are developing a site and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Hosting

When you use any of our hosting products, you'll be able to make password-protected areas easily even if you have zero experience with this sort of matters. We've built in a really easy-to-use point-and-click tool into the Hepsia CP, offered with all accounts, so you will be able to shield any folder within just a few seconds. You'll only have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the particular folder which should be protected (the main one or a subfolder), and then to type the desired username and password which will be used to access the folder in question when you need it. Each protected folder will have a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you will be able to see at a glance what content is protected and what's not. If needed, you can create a number of different sets of login details for the same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to set up password protection for any content you have inside your semi-dedicated server account. We've included an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel via which you will be able to enable the feature with a number of mouse clicks and with no difficulties, even if you are not quite tech-savvy. You'll only have to pick the hostname (domain or subdomain), the particular folder that should be secured (the main folder or a subfolder) and the login name and password. The protection will take effect right away, so if you try to open the password-protected URL in your browser, you will have to enter the newly created login credentials in order to proceed. Additionally, you'll be able to give different usernames for the very same folder to a number of individuals, so you will not need to share the same login credentials with everyone. Any password-protected folder will have a small padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you will be able to recognize this sort of folders easily.
