If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can activate password protection for a certain folder - either the primary site folder or another one below it. When this function is activated, a pop-up will appear each time a person tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have protected just the domain.com folder. In case the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no method of getting around this restriction, so you can be sure that no one shall be able access the shielded content. The feature could be helpful in numerous scenarios - if only a few individuals must be able to see particular files, if you work on a website and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, and so on.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Website Hosting

All of our Linux cloud website hosting packages include an exceptionally convenient tool which will allow you to secure any folder in your account from unauthorized access with only two mouse clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll only have to go to the Password Protection section, to pick the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which needs to be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type the username and the password that must be used in order to access the content in question. The function shall be turned on immediately, so if you try to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to enter the login details. You can create or remove a number of usernames for the same folder, if required. When you go to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be shown with a tiny padlock icon.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to set up password protection for any content you have in your semi-dedicated server account. We have integrated an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel where you shall be able to activate the feature with a number of clicks and without any difficulties, even if you're not very tech-savvy. You will only have to choose the hostname (domain or subdomain), the specific folder which should be secured (the main folder or a subfolder) plus the login name and password. The protection shall take effect immediately, so if you make an attempt to open the password-protected URL inside your web browser, you will need to input the newly created login details before you proceed. You will also be able to give different usernames for the exact same folder to a number of people, so you will not need to share the same login credentials with anyone. Each password-protected folder shall have a small padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you'll be able to recognize this sort of folders in no time.
