If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you'll be able to activate password protection for a particular folder - either the main site folder or any other one below it. Whenever this option is activated, a pop-up shall appear anytime anyone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login info will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured just the domain.com folder. If the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no way to get around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody shall be able access the protected content. The function may be useful in various cases - if only a number of people need to be able to see certain files, if you are developing a site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so on.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting
With the password protection tool that is included with every single shared hosting package deal that we offer, you will be able to shield any content which you have in your account with just a few mouse clicks. As the tool is a component of our ground breaking Hepsia Control Panel, it offers the exact same uncomplicated interface and you'll not need any special skills to use it. Once you navigate to the Password Protection section, you will have to pick one of the domains or subdomains which you have within the account and then decide if the protection should be activated for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then enter the username and the password that you want and you will be ready. A tiny padlock icon within the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the same exact way you will be able to add many usernames and passwords for the same folder if you'd like several people to have their own login credentials.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to shield any content which you have uploaded via our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is part of, so you shall not need to type in any code at any time. You'll only have to select one of the domains/subdomains which you have in the web hosting account and to select which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You can then input the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be all set. The protection shall be switched on immediately, so anybody who tries to access the newly secured folder will have to type in the accurate login information. When several individuals must be able to open exactly the same content, you could make a separate username for each.
