If you'd like to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you are able to switch on password protection for a certain folder - either the primary Internet site folder or a different one below it. In case this function is active, a pop-up shall appear every time someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected just 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 certain that no one will be able to access the shielded content. The function may be helpful in a variety of scenarios - if only some individuals must be able to see specific files, if you work on a website and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, and so on.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Web Hosting

Creating a password-protected area shall take only a few clicks and a few seconds if you host your Internet sites in a shared web hosting account with our company. You shall not need to do anything difficult - you will have to choose a domain/subdomain, to pick which folder under it must be secured, and then to enter the login name and password which will be used to access that folder. In case a number of people need their own login details, there shall not be a problem to make a number of different usernames with access to the same folder. All secured folders shall appear with a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you shall always know where this option is active. If you wish to deactivate the security function for any folder, you can deactivate it from the exact same section of the CP in which you have enabled it.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to set up password protection for any content that you have within your semi-dedicated server account. We have integrated an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel through which you shall be able to enable the function with a few mouse clicks and with no troubles, even if you're not quite tech-savvy. You will only have to pick the hostname (domain or subdomain), the particular folder that should be protected (the main folder or a subfolder) as well as the login name and password. The protection will take effect at once, so if you make an attempt to open the password-protected URL inside your Internet browser, you will need to input the newly created login details before you can proceed. Additionally, you'll be able to give different usernames for the very same folder to a number of people, so you'll not have to share the same login details with anyone. Any password-protected folder shall have a small padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you will be able to recognize this kind of folders in no time.
