If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you can enable password protection for a specific folder - either the primary site folder or another one below it. In case this function is activated, a pop-up will appear anytime anyone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have protected the domain.com folder. If the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no way to get around this restriction, so you can be sure that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The function could be useful in a number of scenarios - if only a few people need to be able to see specific files, if you are developing a website and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so on.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Web Hosting
With the password protection tool supplied with each cloud web hosting package deal that we provide, you'll be able to shield any content which you have within your account with simply a few mouse clicks. Because the tool is an element of our revolutionary Hepsia Control Panel, it offers the exact same simple interface and you will not need any special skills to use it. Once you visit the Password Protection section, you'll have to pick one of the domains or subdomains that you have inside the account and then decide if the protection should be active for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password that you want and you will be all set. A tiny padlock symbol 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 include numerous usernames and passwords for the same folder if you would like several people to have their own login credentials.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Protecting any folder with a password will be quite simple if you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account with us. A user-friendly tool, that is built into the Hepsia CP, will permit you to pick the exact folder that you want to protect with a couple of mouse clicks and all you will have to input shall be the username and the password that'll be used to access it later on. You will not encounter any problems even if you haven't had a hosting account before, due to the fact that you do not need any previous knowledge or coding skills to enable the feature. If you repeat the same very simple steps, you will be able to set up various usernames for the same password-protected area, so a number of people will be able to access a particular folder with their own login credentials. You will be able to see the secured folders easily either in precisely the same section of the CP or within the File Manager section where you'll detect them by their tiny padlock icons.
