If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you could activate password protection for a particular folder - either the primary website folder or a different one below it. In case this option is active, a pop-up shall appear each and every time a person attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected just the domain.com folder. In case the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one will be able to access the protected content. The option could be beneficial in various situations - if only a number of people must be able to see certain files, if you are creating a site and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting

With the password protection tool that comes with each and every shared hosting package that we offer, you shall be able to secure any content which you have within your account with just a few mouse clicks. Due to the fact that the tool is a component of our innovative Hepsia Control Panel, it has the same simple interface and you'll not need any special skills to use it. As soon as you go to the Password Protection section, you will have to pick one of the domains or subdomains which you have inside the account and then decide if the protection should be turned on for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password that you'd like and you shall be all set. A little padlock icon inside the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the same exact way you will be able to add a number of usernames and passwords for the same folder if you'd like several people to have their own login credentials.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall be able to protect any content which you have uploaded via our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is a part of, so you will not need to enter any code at any time. You will simply need to select one of the domains/subdomains which you have inside the website hosting account and to determine which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. After that you can type the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be all set. The protection shall be switched on right away, so anybody who tries to access the newly protected folder shall have to enter the accurate login details. When various people must be able to open exactly the same content, you could set up a separate username for each of them.
