If you would like keep some content concealed from the public eye, you are able to enable password protection for a given folder - either the main site folder or any other one below it. In case this feature is activated, a pop-up shall appear each time anyone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured only the domain.com folder. If the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no method of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one will be able to access the protected content. The option could be beneficial in a variety of scenarios - if only a number of individuals should be able to see specific files, if you are creating a website and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting
All of our shared hosting plans come with a really convenient tool that'll allow you to protect any folder in your account from unauthorized access with just 2 clicks. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll just have to visit the Password Protection section, to choose the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that should be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to enter the username and the password that must be used so as to access the content in question. The function shall be activated instantly, so if you make an effort to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to enter the login information. You could create or remove many usernames for the very same folder, if necessary. When you check out the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be marked with a tiny padlock icon.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
Protecting any folder with a password shall be really easy if you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account with us. A user-friendly tool, which is incorporated into the Hepsia Control Panel, will permit you to pick the exact folder that you want to secure with a few clicks and all you will have to enter will be the username and the password that will be used to access it later. You won't experience any difficulties even if you have not had a web hosting account before, because you don't need any previous knowledge or programming skills to switch on the function. If you repeat the same simple steps, you shall be able to set up numerous usernames for the very same password-protected area, so a number of people shall be able to access a particular folder with their own login details. You will be able to see the secured folders conveniently either in exactly the same section of the Control Panel or in the File Manager section where you will identify them by their small padlock icons.
