If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could switch on password protection for a particular folder - either the primary site folder or any other one below it. When this feature is turned on, a pop-up will appear each time anyone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected the domain.com folder. If the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that nobody will be able to access the shielded content. The option could be helpful in a variety of scenarios - if only a number of people must be able to see particular files, if you are building an Internet site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, etc.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Web Hosting
All our shared web hosting plans come with a very convenient tool that will allow you to protect any folder inside your account from unauthorized access with just two mouse clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will simply have to go to the Password Protection section, to pick the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which should be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to enter the username and the password which should be used so as to access the content in question. The feature shall be turned on instantly, so in case you try to open the folder/website, you will be prompted to type in the login info. You can create or remove many usernames for the very same folder, when necessary. If you go to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be shown with a little padlock icon.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall be able to create password protection for any content you have in your semi-dedicated server account. We have integrated an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which you shall be able to enable the feature with a few clicks and with no complications, even if you're not very tech-savvy. You'll simply need to choose the hostname (domain or subdomain), the exact folder which must be protected (the primary folder or a subfolder) as well as the login name and password. The protection will take effect instantaneously, so if you make an attempt to open the password-protected URL inside your web browser, you will have to enter the newly created login credentials before you proceed. Additionally, you'll be able to give different usernames for the same folder to a number of people, so you'll not have to share the same login details with anyone. Any password-protected folder shall have a small padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you shall be able to recognize such folders effortlessly.
