If you'd like to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you could activate password protection for a specific folder - either the primary site folder or a different one below it. If this function is turned on, a pop-up shall appear anytime someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have protected only the domain.com folder. In case the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any way of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that no one shall be able access the secured content. The option may be useful in a number of scenarios - if only a few people should be able to see certain files, if you work on a website and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.
Password Protected Directories in Hosting
With the password protection tool that is included with each and every hosting
package which we offer, you shall be able to protect any content that you have inside your account with simply a few mouse clicks. Since the tool is part of our innovative Hepsia CP, it offers the same simple interface and you shall not require any special skills to use it. Once you check out the Password Protection section, you will need to choose one of the domains or subdomains you have inside the account and then decide whether the protection should be activated for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type in the username and the password that you would like and you will be ready. 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 shall be able to include a number of usernames and passwords for the same folder if you want several people to have their own login credentials.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
Securing any folder with a password shall be very simple if you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server
account with our company. A user-friendly tool, that is built into the Hepsia CP, will permit you to choose the particular folder you would like to secure with a couple of clicks and all you will have to type in will be the username and the password that'll be used to access it later on. You won't encounter any complications even if you have never had a web hosting account before, because you do not need any previous knowledge or coding skills to switch on the feature. If you repeat the same very simple steps, you'll be able to create different usernames for the exact same password-protected area, so lots of people will be able to access a given folder with their own login credentials. You shall be able to see the protected folders easily either in exactly the same section of the CP or inside the File Manager section where you will recognize them by their tiny padlock icons.
