If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you could switch on password protection for a certain folder - either the main website folder or any other one below it. When this option is activated, a pop-up shall appear every time somebody 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 secured just the domain.com folder. If the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that no one shall be able access the shielded content. The option may be useful in a number of cases - if only certain individuals need to be able to see certain files, if you are building a website and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Website Hosting

With the password protection tool that comes with each cloud website hosting plan that we offer, you will be able to protect any content that you have in your account with only a few clicks. Due to the fact that the tool is a component of our ground breaking Hepsia CP, it has exactly the same uncomplicated interface and you'll not require any special skills to use it. Once you visit the Password Protection section, you will have to select one of the domains or subdomains which you have within the account and then decide whether the protection should be active for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password you want and you'll be ready. A little padlock symbol within the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the very same way you will be able to add many usernames and passwords for the same folder if you would like several people to have their own login credentials.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to create password protection for any content which you have within your semi-dedicated server account. We have added an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel through which you shall be able to enable the function with several mouse clicks and with no troubles, even if you are not quite tech-savvy. You will simply need to select the hostname (domain or subdomain), the particular folder that should be secured (the main folder or a subfolder) plus the login name and password. The protection shall take effect right away, so if you attempt to open the password-protected URL inside your web browser, you will need to input the newly created login details in order to proceed. Additionally, you will be able to give different usernames for the exact same folder to a number of individuals, so you will not have to share the same login credentials with everybody. Any password-protected folder will have a tiny padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you shall be able to recognize such folders easily.
