If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can enable password protection for a given folder - either the main site folder or any other one below it. Whenever this function is activated, a pop-up shall appear every time anyone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected only the domain.com folder. If the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no way to get around this restriction, so you can rest assured that nobody will be able to access the protected content. The feature may be useful in numerous cases - if only a number of individuals must be able to see particular files, if you are building a site and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, and so forth.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting
All of our cloud hosting services include a very convenient tool which will enable you to shield any folder inside your account from unauthorized access with only two mouse clicks. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia hosting CP, you will only have to go to the Password Protection section, to select the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which needs to be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type the username and the password that must be used in order to access the content in question. The function shall be activated at once, so in case you try to open the folder/website, you will be prompted to input the login details. You could set up or remove many usernames for the very same folder, if required. When you check out the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be marked with a small padlock icon.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to protect any content you have uploaded via our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is a part of, so you will not need to enter any code at any time. You'll simply have to choose one of the domains/subdomains which you have in the website hosting account and to select which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then input the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be good to go. The protection shall be enabled immediately, so anybody who attempts to access the recently protected folder will have to type in the accurate login info. In cases where several individuals have to be able to open the same content, you could make a separate username for each one.
