If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you are able to activate password protection for a specific folder - either the primary Internet site folder or any other one below it. If this option is enabled, a pop-up shall appear each and every time someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have protected only the domain.com folder. If the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no way to get around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody will be able to access the protected content. The feature may be helpful in a number of cases - if only a few 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 Web Hosting

Setting up a password-protected area will take only a few mouse clicks and a few seconds if you host your sites within a web hosting account with our company. You will not need to do anything complex - you'll need to pick a domain/subdomain, to pick which folder under it has to be protected, and then to input the login name and password which will be used to access that folder. If a number of individuals require their own login credentials, there won't be a problem to set up a number of different usernames with access to the same exact folder. All protected folders will appear with a padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you'll always know where this feature is active. If you would like to turn off the security function for any folder, you can disable it from the same exact section of the Control Panel where you have enabled it.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll be able to protect any content that you have uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is part of, so you will not have to input any code at any time. You will simply have to select one of the domains/subdomains that you have in the web hosting account and to determine which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You can then type the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be ready. The protection shall be activated instantly, so anybody who tries to access the newly secured folder shall have to input the accurate login details. If a number of individuals have to be able to access the exact same content, you could make a separate username for each.
