If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could switch on password protection for a specific folder - either the main website folder or a different one below it. Whenever this function is activated, a pop-up will appear each and every time somebody tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured just the domain.com folder. If the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no method of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that nobody shall be able access the secured content. The function may be beneficial in a variety of cases - if only certain individuals must be able to see particular files, if you are building a site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so on.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Website Hosting
All our cloud website hosting plans
include an incredibly handy tool that will allow you to secure any folder in your account from unauthorized access with only two clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will only have to navigate to the Password Protection section, to pick the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that needs to be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to input the username and the password which must be used to access the content in question. The function will be turned on right away, so in case you make an effort to open the folder/website, you'll be prompted to input the login details. You may set up or remove a number of usernames for the same folder, if necessary. When you go to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be shown with a small padlock icon.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to set up password protection for any content that you have inside your semi-dedicated server
account. We've integrated an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel through which you shall be able to enable the function with a number of clicks and without any problems, even if you're not really tech-savvy. You will simply have to select the hostname (domain or subdomain), the specific folder which must be secured (the main folder or a subfolder) and the login name and password. The protection will take effect immediately, so if you attempt to open the password-protected URL inside your web browser, you'll need to type the newly created login credentials before you proceed. You will also be able to give different usernames for the exact same folder to a number of individuals, so you will not need to share the same login credentials with everyone. Each password-protected folder shall have a compact padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you'll be able to recognize this type of folders with ease.
