If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you can activate password protection for a particular folder - either the main website folder or a different one below it. If this feature is active, a pop-up will appear each time anyone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have protected the domain.com folder. If the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no way to get around this restriction, so you can be sure that no one will be able to access the shielded content. The function may be useful in numerous cases - if only certain people must be able to see particular files, if you work on a website and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so on.

Password Protected Directories in Hosting

With the password protection tool that comes with each hosting plan which we provide, you'll be able to protect any content that you have within your account with only a few clicks. Due to the fact that the tool is an element of our ground breaking Hepsia CP, it has the exact same simple interface and you will not need any special skills to use it. When you go to the Password Protection section, you'll have to choose one of the domains or subdomains which you have inside the account and then decide whether the protection should be switched on for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type in the username and the password that you want and you shall be set. A little padlock symbol within the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the same exact way you will be able to add many usernames and passwords for the same folder if you would like several people to have their own login credentials.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to set up password protection for any content which you have within your semi-dedicated server account. We've integrated an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel using which you shall be able to switch on the feature with several clicks and without any troubles, even if you are not really tech-savvy. You'll simply have to choose the hostname (domain or subdomain), the exact folder that needs to be secured (the primary folder or a subfolder) and the login name and password. The protection will take effect instantly, so if you attempt to open the password-protected URL within your web browser, you'll need to type the newly created login credentials in order to proceed. You will also be able to give different usernames for the exact same folder to a number of people, so you'll not have to share the same login details with everybody. Each password-protected folder shall have a compact padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you will be able to recognize such folders in no time.
