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.
