If you'd like to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could activate password protection for a specific folder - either the main Internet site folder or any other one below it. If this option is enabled, a pop-up shall appear each time anyone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login details will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured just the domain.com folder. In case 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 positive that no one shall be able access the protected content. The feature can be helpful in various scenarios - if only a few people should be able to see specific files, if you work on a website and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

All of our cloud plans include a really handy tool that'll enable you to secure any folder within your account from unauthorized access with just two mouse clicks. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll just have to navigate to the Password Protection section, to choose the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which has to be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type in the username and the password that must be used to access the content in question. The function shall be turned on at once, so if you attempt to open the folder/website, you will be prompted to input the login information. You could create or remove numerous usernames for the same folder, if necessary. When you navigate to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be marked with a little padlock icon.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to set up password protection for any content which you have in your semi-dedicated server account. We have integrated an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel through which you shall be able to switch on the function with a number of clicks and with no troubles, even if you are not very tech-savvy. You'll simply need to choose the hostname (domain or subdomain), the specific folder which has to be protected (the primary folder or a subfolder) as well as the login name and password. The protection will take effect right away, so if you make an effort to open the password-protected URL within your browser, you will have to enter the newly created login details in order to proceed. You will also be able to give different usernames for the same folder to a number of people, so you will not have to share the same login details with anyone. Each password-protected folder shall have a compact padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you'll be able to recognize this kind of folders easily.
