If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can switch on password protection for a given folder - either the main website folder or a different one below it. If this option is active, a pop-up will appear each time anyone tries 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 only the domain.com folder. If the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no way to get around this restriction, so you can be positive that nobody will be able to access the shielded content. The function could be helpful in numerous cases - if only a few people need to be able to see specific files, if you are building a website and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, and so forth.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Web Hosting
With the password protection tool provided with every single shared web hosting package that we provide, you shall be able to protect any content that you have in your account with only a few mouse clicks. Because the tool is part of our ground breaking Hepsia Control Panel, it offers the exact same simple interface and you'll not require any special skills to use it. Once you visit the Password Protection section, you will need to select one of the domains or subdomains you have in the account and then choose whether the protection should be active for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then enter the username and the password that you would like and you shall be all set to go. A small padlock icon within the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the same exact way you will be able to add multiple 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
Securing any folder with a password will be quite simple if you host your websites inside a semi-dedicated server account with our company. A user-friendly tool, that is built into the Hepsia Control Panel, will allow you to pick the particular folder that you want to secure with a couple of mouse clicks and all you will need to enter shall be the username and the password that will be used to access it later on. You'll not encounter any problems even if you have never had a website hosting account before, due to the fact that you do not need any previous knowledge or programming skills to activate the feature. If you repeat the same very simple steps, you will be able to set up numerous usernames for the very same password-protected area, so a number of people will be able to access a particular folder with their own login details. You shall be able to see the protected folders instantly either in the very same section of the CP or inside the File Manager section where you shall detect them by their tiny padlock icons.
