If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you are able to enable password protection for a particular folder - either the main website folder or another one below it. When this function is enabled, a pop-up shall appear each and every time a person attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login details will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have protected just the domain.com folder. When the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no way to get around this restriction, so you can rest assured that no one will be able to access the secured content. The feature may be useful in a number of scenarios - if only some 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's completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Web Hosting

Setting up a password-protected area will take merely several mouse clicks and a few seconds when you host your websites inside a shared web hosting account with our company. You will not have to do anything complicated - you'll need to pick a domain/subdomain, to select which folder under it must be protected, and then to input the login name and password which will be used to access that folder. In case a number of individuals need their own login details, there shall not be a problem to make a variety of different usernames with access to the same exact folder. All secured folders will appear with a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you'll always know where this feature is active. If you want to disable the security feature for any folder, you can disable it from the same exact section of the Control Panel in which you have enabled it.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to secure any content you have uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is part of, so you shall not need to write any code at any time. You'll simply have to pick one of the domains/subdomains which you have inside the website hosting account and to select which folder must be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can type in the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be ready. The protection will be enabled at once, so anybody who attempts to access the recently secured folder shall have to enter the accurate login details. If several individuals should be able to open precisely the same content, you could set up a separate username for each of them.
