If you would like keep some content hidden from the public eye, you can enable password protection for a given folder - either the main Internet site folder or any other one below it. In case this function is turned on, a pop-up shall appear each time anyone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured only the domain.com folder. If the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be sure that no one shall be able access the secured content. The feature could be useful in a variety of situations - if only certain individuals must be able to see particular files, if you are building a website and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so on.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Web Hosting
With the password protection tool that comes with every single shared web hosting package that we provide, you will be able to shield any content that you have within your account with just a few mouse clicks. As the tool is part of our innovative Hepsia Control Panel, it provides the same simple interface and you will not require any special skills to use it. Once you go to the Password Protection section, you will have to choose one of the domains or subdomains which you have within the account and then choose whether the protection should be turned on for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type in the username and the password that you would like and you shall be set. A small padlock symbol within the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the same exact way you'll 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
You shall be able to set up password protection for any content which you have inside your semi-dedicated server account. We've added an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel through which you will be able to activate the feature with several clicks and without any problems, even if you are not very tech-savvy. You'll simply have to pick the hostname (domain or subdomain), the specific folder that should be secured (the primary folder or a subfolder) plus the login name and password. The protection will take effect at once, so if you attempt to open the password-protected URL within your web browser, you will need to type in the newly created login details before you can proceed. Additionally, you'll be able to give different usernames for the same folder to a number of individuals, so you'll not have to share the same login details with anyone. Any password-protected folder shall have a little padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you shall be able to recognize this sort of folders in no time.
