If you wish to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to switch on password protection for a specific folder - either the main site folder or a different one below it. If this option is activated, a pop-up will 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 information will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected the domain.com folder. When the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any way of getting around this restriction, so you can be sure that nobody will be able to access the shielded content. The option can be useful in a number of cases - if only some people must be able to see certain files, if you are creating a site and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, etc.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting
When you use any of our shared hosting plans, you can make password-protected areas with ease even if you have no experience with such matters. We have built in a really easy-to-use point-and-click tool within the Hepsia CP, supplied with all accounts, so you will be able to secure any folder within just seconds. You'll only have to choose a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder which has to be secured (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to enter the desired username and password that'll be used to access the folder in question when you need it. Any secured folder will have a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see at a glance what content is secured and what is not. If required, you could make a number of different sets of login credentials for the same folder.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall be able to set up password protection for any content that you have in your semi-dedicated server account. We've integrated an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel via which you will be able to activate the feature with several clicks and without any troubles, even if you are not very tech-savvy. You'll simply need to select the hostname (domain or subdomain), the exact folder which needs to be protected (the main folder or a subfolder) as well as the login name and password. The protection will take effect immediately, so if you attempt to open the password-protected URL in your Internet browser, you will need to type the newly created login details in order to proceed. You'll also be able to give different usernames for the very same folder to a number of people, so you will not need to share the same login credentials with everybody. Each password-protected folder shall have a small padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you shall be able to recognize this sort of folders with ease.
