If you'd like to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to activate password protection for a given folder - either the primary Internet site folder or a different one below it. Whenever this option is activated, a pop-up will appear each time somebody tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected only the domain.com folder. In case the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no way to get around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one shall be able access the protected content. The feature can be helpful in a number of scenarios - if only certain individuals need to be able to see specific files, if you are creating a site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Website Hosting

With the password protection tool provided with each shared website hosting plan that we offer, you'll be able to secure any content that you have within your account with just a few clicks. Since the tool is a component of our revolutionary Hepsia Control Panel, it features exactly the same simple interface and you'll not require any special skills to use it. As soon as you navigate to the Password Protection section, you will need to pick one of the domains or subdomains which you have inside the account and then decide whether the protection should be active for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then type in the username and the password that you want and you shall be all set. A tiny padlock symbol inside the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the same way you will be able to include several 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

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall be able to protect any content that you have uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it is part of, so you will not need to write any code at any time. You'll simply have to select one of the domains/subdomains which you have in the hosting account and to select which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then enter the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be good to go. The protection will be turned on at once, so anyone that attempts to access the newly secured folder shall have to input the correct login information. If a number of individuals should be able to access the exact same content, you can create a separate username for each.
