If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you'll be able to switch on password protection for a certain folder - either the primary website folder or any other one below it. Whenever this function is turned on, a pop-up shall appear each and every time somebody tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have protected only the domain.com folder. When the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any method of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that no one shall be able access the shielded content. The function could be helpful in numerous situations - if only a number of individuals must be able to see certain files, if you work on an Internet site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so on.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting
All of our shared plans include a very useful tool that will enable you to protect any folder inside your account from unauthorized access with simply two clicks. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia hosting CP, you'll just have to visit the Password Protection section, to select the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that needs to be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to input the username and the password that must be used so as to access the content in question. The function shall be turned on immediately, so if you attempt to open the folder/website, you'll be prompted to enter the login information. You can set up or remove numerous usernames for the exact same folder, when necessary. If you check out the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be shown with a small padlock icon.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall be able to set up password protection for any content which you have in your semi-dedicated server account. We've included an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel using which you shall be able to enable the function with a number of clicks and without any problems, even if you are not very tech-savvy. You will only need to pick the hostname (domain or subdomain), the particular folder that needs to be protected (the main folder or a subfolder) and the login name and password. The protection will take effect instantaneously, so if you make an attempt to open the password-protected URL in your web browser, you'll have to enter the newly created login details before you can proceed. You'll also be able to give different usernames for the exact same folder to a number of individuals, so you'll not have to share the same login details with everybody. Each password-protected folder will have a tiny padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you shall be able to recognize this kind of folders easily.
