If you would like keep some content concealed from the public eye, you could activate password protection for a specific folder - either the primary website folder or any other one below it. In case this feature is active, a pop-up shall appear each time somebody attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have protected the domain.com folder. When the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no method of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody shall be able access the shielded content. The option may be useful in a variety of scenarios - if only some individuals need to 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, etc.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting
With the password protection tool supplied with each shared hosting package which we offer, you'll be able to shield any content which you have within your account with merely a few clicks. Due to the fact that the tool is a component of our ground breaking Hepsia Control Panel, it features the exact same simple interface and you'll not require any special skills to use it. When you visit the Password Protection section, you will have to choose one of the domains or subdomains which you have inside the account and then decide whether the protection should be turned on for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password that you would like and you shall be ready. A tiny padlock icon inside the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the same way you will be able to include many usernames and passwords for the same folder if you want several people to have their own login credentials.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to set up password protection for any content that you have inside your semi-dedicated server account. We've included an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel where you will be able to enable the function with a few mouse clicks and without any difficulties, even if you are not really tech-savvy. You'll only need to choose the hostname (domain or subdomain), the particular folder that should be protected (the primary folder or a subfolder) plus the login name and password. The protection will take effect instantaneously, so if you make an effort to open the password-protected URL within your browser, you will have to input the newly created login details before you proceed. You will also be able to give different usernames for the same folder to a number of individuals, so you'll not need to share the same login credentials with anyone. Any password-protected folder shall have a little padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you'll be able to recognize this type of folders easily.
