If you wish to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you could enable password protection for a particular folder - either the main Internet site folder or any other one below it. When this option is turned on, a pop-up will appear each time a person attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured the domain.com folder. In case the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that nobody will be able to access the shielded content. The function may be helpful in various situations - if only a number of individuals must be able to see certain files, if you are creating a site and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, and so on.

Password Protected Directories in Website Hosting

Setting up a password-protected area shall take only a couple of mouse clicks and a few seconds if you host your websites inside a website hosting account with our company. You shall not need to do anything complex - you will have to choose a domain/subdomain, to select which folder under it must be protected, and then to input the login name and password that'll be used to access that folder. In case a number of individuals need their own login credentials, there will not be a problem to create several different usernames with access to the exact same folder. All protected folders shall appear with a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you shall always know where this option is activated. If you would like to turn off the security function for any folder, you can disable it from the exact same section of the CP where you have enabled it.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to shield any content you have uploaded via our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is a part of, so you will not need to type in any code at any time. You will simply have to select one of the domains/subdomains that you have in the hosting account and to select which folder must be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can type the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be all set. The protection shall be switched on right away, so anyone that tries to access the freshly protected folder shall have to type in the correct login details. When a number of individuals must be able to access the exact same content, you could make a separate username for each.
