If you'd like to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to enable password protection for a specific folder - either the main Internet site folder or any other one below it. Whenever this feature is turned on, a pop-up shall appear every time somebody tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login info will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected the domain.com folder. In case the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no way of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The function can be useful in a variety of cases - if only a few people must be able to see particular files, if you are building an Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Website Hosting

Setting up a password-protected area will take just a few mouse clicks and a few seconds if you host your sites within a shared website hosting account with us. You will not need to do anything complicated - you'll need to pick a domain/subdomain, to pick which folder under it must be secured, and then to enter the login name and password that will be used to access that folder. In case a number of people require their own login details, there shall not be a problem to set up numerous different usernames with access to the exact same folder. All secured folders shall appear with a padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you'll always know where this function is activated. If you would like to turn off the security function for any folder, you can disable it from the exact same section of the Control Panel where you have enabled it.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

Securing any folder with a password shall be easy if you host your sites inside a semi-dedicated server account with our company. A user-friendly tool, that is incorporated into the Hepsia CP, will allow you to choose the specific folder that you want to protect with a few mouse clicks and all you will have to input will be the username and the password that will be used to access it subsequently. You'll not encounter any complications even if you have not had a website hosting account before, because you don't need any previous knowledge or coding skills to enable the function. If you repeat the same very simple steps, you shall be able to set up many usernames for the very same password-protected area, so a number of people shall be able to access a certain folder with their own login credentials. You shall be able to see the protected folders very easily either in the same section of the Control Panel or within the File Manager section where you shall identify them by their little padlock icons.
