If you would like keep some content hidden from the public eye, you can enable password protection for a certain folder - either the primary Internet site folder or another one below it. If this function is turned on, a pop-up shall appear each and every time somebody tries 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 just the domain.com folder. When the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any way of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that nobody shall be able access the shielded content. The option could be useful in various cases - if only a few people need to be able to see particular files, if you work on a website and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so on.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

As the tool is an element of our revolutionary Hepsia CP, it provides exactly the same simple interface and you will not require any special skills to use it. As soon as you visit the Password Protection section, you will need to choose one of the domains or subdomains that you have inside the account and then decide whether the protection should be active for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password that you want and you will be set. A little padlock symbol inside the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the same exact way you will be able to add numerous usernames and passwords for the same folder if you would like several people to have their own login credentials.

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to shield any content that you've uploaded via our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is a part of, so you'll not have to enter any code at any time. You'll only need to choose one of the domains/subdomains you have inside the web hosting account and to determine which folder must 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 good to go. The protection shall be turned on at once, so anyone who tries to access the freshly secured folder shall have to input the accurate login details. In cases where various people must be able to access exactly the same content, you can create a separate username for each.
