If you'd like to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can activate password protection for a particular folder - either the primary site folder or a different one below it. When this feature is enabled, a pop-up will appear anytime anyone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login details will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured the domain.com folder. If the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no way to get around this restriction, so you can rest assured that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The option may be useful in a number of scenarios - if only a number of individuals must be able to see certain files, if you are creating an Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

Creating a password-protected area will take no more than a few clicks and a few seconds when you host your websites inside a cloud hosting account with us. You won't need to do anything complicated - you'll have to select a domain/subdomain, to pick which folder under it must be secured, and then to input the login name and password which will be used to access that folder. When a number of individuals require their own login credentials, there shall not be a problem to set up numerous different usernames with access to the very same folder. All protected folders shall appear with a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you'll always know where this function is enabled. If you would like to disable the security feature for any folder, you can disable it from the exact same section of the Control Panel in which you have enabled it.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to protect any content that you've uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is part of, so you'll not have to write any code at any time. You will simply have to choose one of the domains/subdomains that you have in the website hosting account and to choose which folder must be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. After that you can type the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be good to go. The protection shall be enabled instantly, so anyone who attempts to access the freshly secured folder shall have to type in the correct login details. When a number of people have to be able to open exactly the same content, you could make a separate username for each.
