If you'd like to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could enable password protection for a given folder - either the main website folder or any other one below it. If this function is activated, a pop-up will 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 info shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured only the domain.com folder. When the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be sure that nobody shall be able access the secured content. The option could be helpful in a variety of scenarios - if only a few people must be able to see specific files, if you are developing a website and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting
With the password protection tool that is included with each and every shared hosting plan which we provide, you'll be able to protect any content that you have within your account with only a few mouse clicks. Due to the fact that the tool is an element of our ground breaking Hepsia Control Panel, it features exactly the same simple interface and you shall not need any special skills to use it. Once you navigate to the Password Protection section, you will need to pick one of the domains or subdomains that you have within the account and then decide whether the protection should be active for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then enter the username and the password that you want and you will be all set. A small padlock icon within the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the very same way you'll be able to include many usernames and passwords for the same folder if you want several people to have their own login credentials.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to set up password protection for any content which you have inside your semi-dedicated server account. We've included an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel using which you will be able to switch on the function with a number of clicks and without any problems, even if you're not quite tech-savvy. You will only need to choose the hostname (domain or subdomain), the exact folder that should be secured (the primary folder or a subfolder) plus the login name and password. The protection shall take effect instantly, so if you attempt to open the password-protected URL within your browser, you will have to type the newly created login details before you can proceed. You will also be able to give different usernames for the exact same folder to a number of individuals, so you will not have to share the same login details with anybody. Any password-protected folder will have a tiny padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you will be able to recognize such folders effortlessly.
