If you would like keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could enable password protection for a certain folder - either the main Internet site folder or another one below it. Whenever this function is enabled, a pop-up will appear every time somebody attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login info will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected only the domain.com folder. When the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any method of getting around this restriction, so you can be sure that nobody will be able to access the shielded content. The option may be useful in a number of scenarios - if only a number of people must be able to see particular files, if you are building a site and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, and so on.
Password Protected Directories in Web Hosting
If you use any of our web hosting products, you will be able to set up password-protected areas with ease even if you don't have any experience with this type of matters. We've built in a very easy-to-use point-and-click tool within the Hepsia CP, provided with all accounts, so you shall be able to protect any folder within just seconds. You will only have to select a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder that has to be secured (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to input the desired username and password which will be used to access the folder in question in the future. Each secured folder shall have padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see easily what content is protected and what is not. If required, you may create a number of sets of login details for exactly the same folder.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to set up password protection for any content that you have in your semi-dedicated server account. We have integrated an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel where you will be able to enable the feature with several clicks and without any complications, even if you're not really tech-savvy. You'll simply need to pick the hostname (domain or subdomain), the specific folder which needs to be protected (the main folder or a subfolder) plus the login name and password. The protection will take effect at once, so if you attempt to open the password-protected URL within your Internet browser, you will need to enter the newly created login details in order to proceed. Additionally, you will be able to give different usernames for the exact same folder to a number of people, so you will not have to share the same login details with everyone. Any password-protected folder shall have a small padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you'll be able to recognize this type of folders easily.
