If you wish to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you are able to switch on password protection for a particular folder - either the primary site folder or any other one below it. When this option is enabled, a pop-up will appear each time anyone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have protected just the domain.com folder. In case the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any way of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that no one will be able to access the shielded content. The feature can be helpful in a variety of cases - if only certain people must be able to see particular files, if you are developing a site and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, etc.

Password Protected Directories in Web Hosting

When you use any of our web hosting solutions, you can create password-protected areas with ease even if you have no experience with such matters. We have integrated an extremely easy-to-use point-and-click tool into the Hepsia CP, which comes with all accounts, so you'll be able to shield any folder within just a few seconds. You will simply have to choose a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder that must be protected (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to input the desired username and password that will be used to access the folder in question at some point. Each and every secured folder will have a padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you shall be able to see immediately what content is secured and what is not. If necessary, you can create several different sets of login credentials for the exact same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Securing any folder with a password shall be really easy if you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account with us. A user-friendly tool, that's built into the Hepsia Control Panel, will enable you to pick the specific folder you would like to secure with a couple of mouse clicks and all you'll need to input will be the username and the password which will be used to access it afterwards. You will not encounter any problems even if you have not had a website hosting account before, considering that you do not need any previous knowledge or programming skills to activate the feature. If you repeat the same simple steps, you'll be able to set up different usernames for the same password-protected area, so a number of people shall be able to access a certain folder with their own login credentials. You will be able to see the protected folders instantly either in precisely the same section of the CP or inside the File Manager section where you shall recognize them by their compact padlock icons.
