If you would like keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can switch on password protection for a specific folder - either the primary Internet site folder or a different one below it. When this function is activated, a pop-up shall appear each time someone 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 in case you have secured just the domain.com folder. If the credentials 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 nobody shall be able access the protected content. The feature can be helpful in various scenarios - if only some individuals should be able to see particular files, if you are building an Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, and so forth.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting
When you use any of our shared hosting packages, you will be able to create password-protected areas easily even if you don't have any experience with this kind of matters. We've built in a very easy-to-use point-and-click tool into the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts, so you'll be able to secure any folder within just seconds. You will only have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder that must be secured (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to type in the desired username and password that'll be used to access the folder in question later on. Each protected folder will have a padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see immediately what content is protected and what is not. If necessary, you may create a number of sets of login credentials for the same folder.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll be able to protect any content which you have uploaded using 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 have to enter any code at any time. You'll only need to pick one of the domains/subdomains you have inside the web hosting account and to choose which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can enter the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be good to go. The protection will be switched on instantly, so anyone that attempts to access the freshly secured folder will have to type in the right login info. If various people have to be able to open precisely the same content, you can create a separate username for each one.
