If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you are able to activate password protection for a particular folder - either the primary site folder or a different one below it. In case this feature is activated, a pop-up shall appear each and every time a person tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected only the domain.com folder. In case the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any way of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that nobody shall be able access the shielded content. The feature can be beneficial in various scenarios - if only some individuals should be able to see certain files, if you are developing a website and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so on.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

If you use any of our cloud hosting products, you'll be able to create password-protected areas without difficulty even if you have zero experience with this type of matters. We've incorporated an incredibly easy-to-use point-and-click tool within the Hepsia CP, provided with all accounts, so you will be able to protect any folder within a matter of seconds. You will have to select a domain or a subdomain and the exact folder which should be protected (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to type the preferred username and password that'll be used to access the folder in question in the future. Each secured folder will have a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you shall be able to see at a glance what content is secured and what is not. If necessary, you could make a number of different sets of login details for the exact same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to create password protection for any content you have within your semi-dedicated server account. We've added an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel via which you shall be able to switch on the function with several mouse clicks and with no troubles, even if you're not quite tech-savvy. You'll only have to choose the hostname (domain or subdomain), the exact folder which has to be protected (the primary folder or a subfolder) plus the login name and password. The protection shall take effect immediately, so if you try to open the password-protected URL within your web browser, you will have to input the newly created login details before you can proceed. Additionally, you'll be able to give different usernames for the same folder to a number of people, so you will not need to share the same login details with everybody. Each password-protected folder shall have a small padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you will be able to recognize this type of folders with ease.
