If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you can switch on password protection for a specific folder - either the main Internet site folder or another one below it. Whenever this function is activated, a pop-up shall appear each and every time anyone 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 if you have protected the domain.com folder. When the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any way to get around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one will be able to access the secured content. The option can be helpful in a variety of situations - if only certain individuals need to be able to see specific files, if you are developing a website and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, etc.
Password Protected Directories in Website Hosting
When you use any of our website hosting products, you can make password-protected areas easily even if you don't have any experience with such matters. We have incorporated a really easy-to-use point-and-click tool into the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all accounts, so you'll be able to secure any folder within merely seconds. You will have to select a domain or a subdomain and the particular folder that has to be secured (the main one or a subfolder), and then to input the username and password that'll be used to access the folder in question later on. Each secured folder will have a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see at a glance what content is secured and what is not. If required, you can make a number of sets of login credentials for exactly the same folder.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
Securing any folder with a password will be really easy if you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account with our company. A user-friendly tool, which is built into the Hepsia CP, will enable you to select the specific folder which you want to secure with a few clicks and all you will need to enter shall be the username and the password which will be used to access it later on. You will not encounter any issues even if you have not had a website hosting account before, since you don't need any previous knowledge or computer programming skills to switch on the feature. If you repeat the same basic steps, you will be able to set up many usernames for the exact same password-protected area, so a number of people shall be able to access a given folder with their own login details. You will be able to see the protected folders at a glance either in exactly the same section of the Control Panel or inside the File Manager section where you'll recognize them by their tiny padlock icons.
