If you'd like to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to switch on password protection for a given folder - either the primary website folder or another one below it. In case this function is activated, a pop-up will appear anytime anyone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which 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. If the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one shall be able access the secured content. The function could be useful in a number of situations - if only a few people must be able to see certain files, if you work on an Internet site and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, etc.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Website Hosting
If you use any of our shared website hosting products, you'll be able to create password-protected areas with ease even if you have zero experience with such matters. We have built in a very easy-to-use point-and-click tool in the Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with all accounts, so you'll be able to shield any folder within just a few seconds. You will simply have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the particular folder that must be protected (the main one or a subfolder), and then to type in the username and password which will be used to access the folder in question later on. Each protected folder will have a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see at a glance what content is protected and what is not. If necessary, you can make a number of different sets of login credentials for exactly the same folder.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to create password protection for any content which you have within your semi-dedicated server account. We have included an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel where you shall be able to activate the feature with a few clicks and with no difficulties, even if you are not really tech-savvy. You will only need to select the hostname (domain or subdomain), the exact folder which has to be protected (the main folder or a subfolder) as well as the login name and password. The protection shall take effect right away, so if you make an effort to open the password-protected URL within your web browser, you will need to input 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'll not need to share the same login details with anybody. Each password-protected folder will have a little padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you shall be able to recognize this sort of folders easily.
