If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you are able to activate password protection for a certain folder - either the main website folder or a different one below it. Whenever this option is active, a pop-up shall appear each and every time someone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have protected the domain.com folder. If the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no way to get around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one shall be able access the protected content. The function can be beneficial in a number of situations - if only certain individuals need to be able to see specific files, if you are developing an Internet site and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, etc.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Website Hosting
When you use any of our shared website hosting
products, you will be able to make password-protected areas with ease even if you have zero experience with such matters. We've incorporated an incredibly 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 just seconds. You will have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the exact folder that has to be secured (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to input the username and password that'll be used to access the folder in question in the future. Any protected folder shall have padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see instantly what content is protected and what is not. If needed, you can create a number of different sets of login details for exactly the same folder.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server
account with us, you'll be able to protect any content which you have uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is part of, so you shall not have to write any code at any time. You will simply have to choose one of the domains/subdomains which you have in the website hosting account and to select which folder should be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. After that you can type in the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be good to go. The protection will be enabled right away, so anybody who attempts to access the freshly protected folder shall have to input the accurate login details. If various people have to be able to access the same content, you could set up a separate username for each.
