If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you can activate password protection for a certain folder - either the main site folder or a different one below it. If this option is active, a pop-up shall appear each time a person tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have protected the domain.com folder. If the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no method of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The feature could be useful in a variety of cases - if only a number of people must be able to see certain files, if you are creating 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 is included with every single shared web hosting package that we provide, you'll be able to protect any content that you have in your account with only a few mouse clicks. As the tool is an element of our ground breaking Hepsia CP, it features the exact same uncomplicated interface and you will not require any special skills to use it. As soon as you visit the Password Protection section, you will have to pick one of the domains or subdomains you have inside the account and then choose whether the protection should be activated for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password that you would like and you will be set. A tiny padlock icon within the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the very same way you'll be able to include numerous usernames and passwords for the same folder if you would like 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 which you have in your semi-dedicated server account. We've included an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel via which you will be able to switch on the feature with several mouse clicks and with no troubles, even if you're not quite tech-savvy. You'll simply need to pick the hostname (domain or subdomain), the exact folder which has to be secured (the main folder or a subfolder) as well as the login name and password. The protection shall take effect at once, so if you try to open the password-protected URL inside your Internet browser, you'll need to input the newly created login credentials before you proceed. You'll also be able to give different usernames for the exact same folder to a number of individuals, so you will not need to share the same login details with everyone. Each password-protected folder shall have a compact padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you will be able to recognize this sort of folders in no time.
