If you'd like to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to activate password protection for a specific folder - either the primary site folder or a different one below it. When this option is activated, a pop-up will 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 information will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected just the domain.com folder. If the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no method of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that no one shall be able access the secured content. The option can be useful in various scenarios - if only a number of people must be able to see certain files, if you are building a website and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, and so forth.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting
All of our cloud hosting feature an exceptionally handy tool that will enable you to shield any folder inside your account from unauthorized access with just two mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll only have to go to the Password Protection section, to pick the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which has to be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type the username and the password that have to be used so as to access the content in question. The function shall be activated right away, so if you attempt to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to enter the login info. You could set up or remove a number of usernames for the exact same folder, when necessary. When you navigate to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be shown with a small padlock icon.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to shield any content that you have uploaded using our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's part of, so you shall not have to type in any code at any time. You will simply need to choose one of the domains/subdomains that you have in the hosting account and to pick which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. After that you can input the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be good to go. The protection shall be activated straightaway, so anybody who attempts to access the newly secured folder shall have to type in the accurate login information. If various people should be able to open exactly the same content, you could set up a separate username for each of them.
