If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can activate password protection for a particular folder - either the main Internet site folder or another one below it. If this feature is turned on, a pop-up shall appear each time somebody attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured the domain.com folder. When the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any way to get around this restriction, so you can be sure that nobody shall be able access the shielded content. The option can be helpful in a number of situations - if only a few people should be able to see certain files, if you are creating a website and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, and so on.

Password Protected Directories in Hosting

With the password protection tool provided with each hosting package deal which we provide, you will be able to shield any content that you have inside your account with merely a few clicks. As the tool is a component of our revolutionary Hepsia CP, it provides the same uncomplicated interface and you will not need any special skills to use it. When you navigate to the Password Protection section, you'll have to pick one of the domains or subdomains you have inside the account and then decide if the protection should be turned on for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password that you would like and you shall be ready. A small padlock symbol within the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the exact same way you'll be able to add several usernames and passwords for the same folder if you want several people to have their own login credentials.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to set up password protection for any content you have inside your semi-dedicated server account. We have included an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel using which you shall be able to activate the feature with a few mouse clicks and without any troubles, even if you are not quite tech-savvy. You will simply have to pick the hostname (domain or subdomain), the specific folder which needs to be protected (the primary folder or a subfolder) and the login name and password. The protection will take effect instantaneously, so if you try to open the password-protected URL within your browser, you will need to type in the newly created login details before you proceed. Additionally, you will be able to give different usernames for the same folder to a number of individuals, so you will not need to share the same login credentials with everyone. Each password-protected folder will have a tiny padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you'll be able to recognize this type of folders easily.
