If you'd like to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to activate password protection for a certain folder - either the main Internet site folder or a different one below it. In case this feature is turned on, a pop-up will appear anytime someone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured the domain.com folder. If 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 shall be able access the shielded content. The function may be beneficial in a variety of scenarios - if only a few people should be able to see particular files, if you are developing a site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so on.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Website Hosting

Setting up a password-protected area shall take merely several clicks and a few seconds when you host your websites in a shared website hosting account with our company. You shall not have to do anything challenging - you'll need to choose a domain/subdomain, to pick 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 will not be a problem to create a number of different usernames with access to the very same folder. All protected folders will appear with a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you'll always know where this function is active. If you would like to deactivate the protection function for any folder, you can deactivate it from the same exact section of the Control Panel where you have enabled it.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to protect any content that you've uploaded via our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it is a part of, so you will not need to input any code at any time. You will only have to choose one of the domains/subdomains which you have inside the website hosting account and to determine 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, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be ready. The protection will be activated straightaway, so anyone who attempts to access the recently protected folder shall have to input the correct login details. When various people must be able to open the exact same content, you can create a separate username for each of them.
