If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to enable password protection for a specific folder - either the main website folder or another one below it. When this option is enabled, a pop-up will 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 in case you have protected only the domain.com folder. When the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no method of getting around this restriction, so you can be sure that no one will be able to access the protected content. The option can be beneficial in a number of cases - if only a few individuals should be able to see particular files, if you are developing an Internet site and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

If you use any of our cloud hosting packages, you will be able to create password-protected areas easily even if you don't have any experience with this kind of matters. We have included a very easy-to-use point-and-click tool within the Hepsia CP, which comes with all accounts, so you'll be able to shield any folder within just a few seconds. You will only have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the exact folder that should be secured (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to type the preferred username and password which will 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 will be able to see instantly what content is secured and what's not. If required, you could make several different sets of login credentials for the same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

It will take a few mouse clicks to activate the password protection function for any folder you have, if you use one of our semi-dedicated hosting. We have an exceptionally helpful tool, that has a user-friendly point-and-click interface and which can be used by people with no experience. It's included in the Hepsia Control Panel, which you'll get to manage your new account and when you log in and check out the Password Protection section, you'll be able to select the domain or subdomain that needs to be protected and then the specific folder - either the main folder or any subfolder under it. You'll also see two boxes in which you will have to input the login name and the password that will be necessary to access the folder in question and you shall be ready. By following precisely the same steps, you will be able to set up many different login credentials for the exact same folder to give several people their own username/password. All secured folders shall have a small padlock sign in the File Manager section.
