If you would like keep some content hidden from the public eye, you are able to activate password protection for a given folder - either the primary Internet site folder or any other one below it. If this function is turned on, a pop-up will appear 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 info shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have protected just the domain.com folder. When the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any method of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody will be able to access the shielded content. The option can be useful in a number of situations - if only certain individuals should be able to see specific files, if you work on a site and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

With the password protection tool that is included with each cloud hosting package deal which we provide, you will be able to protect any content which you have inside your account with simply a few clicks. As the tool is part of our revolutionary Hepsia CP, it provides the exact same simple interface and you'll not need any special skills to use it. As soon as you visit the Password Protection section, you'll have to pick one of the domains or subdomains that you have in the account and then choose if the protection should be turned on for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type in the username and the password that you would like and you shall be all set to go. A small padlock icon within the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the same way you will be able to add multiple usernames and passwords for the same folder if you want several people to have their own login credentials.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to create password protection for any content that you have in your semi-dedicated server account. We've integrated an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel through which you shall be able to activate the function with a few mouse clicks and with no difficulties, even if you're not quite tech-savvy. You will simply have to select the hostname (domain or subdomain), the particular folder which must be secured (the main folder or a subfolder) plus the login name and password. The protection shall take effect instantaneously, so if you attempt to open the password-protected URL inside your browser, you will need to type in the newly created login details before you can proceed. Additionally, you'll be able to give different usernames for the very same folder to a number of individuals, so you will not have to share the same login credentials with anyone. Each password-protected folder will have a small padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you shall be able to recognize such folders in no time.
