If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you'll be able to enable password protection for a particular folder - either the main website folder or any other one below it. When this feature is enabled, a pop-up shall appear anytime anyone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected just the domain.com folder. If the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no method of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one will be able to access the shielded content. The option could be useful in various scenarios - if only a few people must be able to see specific files, if you are creating a website and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Website Hosting

With the password protection tool that comes with each cloud website hosting plan which we provide, you will be able to shield any content that you have inside your account with simply a few clicks. As the tool is a component of our innovative Hepsia Control Panel, it offers the same uncomplicated interface and you'll not require any special skills to use it. As soon as you navigate to the Password Protection section, you'll have to pick one of the domains or subdomains that you have in the account and then choose whether the protection should be active for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password you want and you will be ready. A little padlock symbol inside the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the same exact way you'll be able to add several 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 shall be able to create password protection for any content that you have in your semi-dedicated server account. We have added an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel using which you shall be able to switch on the feature with a few clicks and with no complications, even if you are not very tech-savvy. You will simply need to select the hostname (domain or subdomain), the exact folder which needs to be protected (the primary folder or a subfolder) plus the login name and password. The protection shall take effect at once, so if you make an attempt to open the password-protected URL in your Internet browser, you will need to input the newly created login details in order to proceed. Additionally, you will be able to give different usernames for the very same folder to a number of people, so you'll not need to share the same login details with everyone. Any password-protected folder shall have a compact padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you'll be able to recognize this sort of folders in no time.
