If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you'll be able to activate password protection for a given folder - either the main site folder or a different one below it. When this option is enabled, a pop-up shall appear anytime somebody attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured only the domain.com folder. In case the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any method of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody shall be able access the secured content. The feature can be helpful in a number of scenarios - if only certain individuals must be able to see certain files, if you are developing an Internet site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Website Hosting

When you use any of our website hosting products, you'll be able to make password-protected areas effortlessly even if you have no experience with this type of matters. We have incorporated an extremely easy-to-use point-and-click tool into the Hepsia CP, provided with all accounts, so you'll be able to protect any folder within a matter of seconds. You'll only have to select a domain or a subdomain and the exact folder which must be secured (the main one or a subfolder), and then to type in the preferred username and password which will be used to access the folder in question later on. Each and every protected folder shall have padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see instantly what content is secured and what is not. When necessary, you may create a number of sets of login details for exactly the same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll be able to secure any content which you have uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it is a part of, so you'll not need to type in any code at any time. You'll simply need to choose one of the domains/subdomains that you have in the website hosting account and to determine which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can type the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be all set. The protection will be switched on straightaway, so anyone that attempts to access the freshly secured folder will have to type in the correct login details. In case various individuals have to be able to access the same content, you could make a separate username for each.
