If you'd like to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you are able to activate password protection for a certain folder - either the primary site folder or any other one below it. If this function is activated, a pop-up shall appear anytime someone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected just the domain.com folder. If the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no method of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The option may be useful in numerous situations - if only a few people must be able to see particular files, if you are developing a website and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, etc.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

If you use any of our cloud hosting solutions, you can create password-protected areas easily even if you don't have any experience with such matters. We have incorporated an incredibly easy-to-use point-and-click tool in the Hepsia CP, offered with all accounts, so you shall be able to shield any folder within just a few seconds. You'll simply have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the exact folder which should be protected (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to enter the preferred username and password that will be used to access the folder in question later on. Any secured folder will have a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you will be able to see immediately what content is protected and what's not. If required, you can create several different sets of login details for exactly the same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to create password protection for any content you have inside your semi-dedicated server account. We have integrated an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel via which you shall be able to switch on the feature with a few clicks and without any problems, even if you are not quite tech-savvy. You'll only need to choose the hostname (domain or subdomain), the exact folder that has to be secured (the primary folder or a subfolder) as well as the login name and password. The protection will take effect instantly, so if you try to open the password-protected URL in your browser, you'll have to type the newly created login details before you can proceed. You will also be able to give different usernames for the very same folder to a number of people, so you'll not have to share the same login details with anybody. Any password-protected folder will have a little padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you'll be able to recognize this sort of folders with ease.
