If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could switch on password protection for a specific folder - either the primary Internet site folder or a different one below it. When this function is enabled, a pop-up will appear each time a person tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured just the domain.com folder. If the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no method of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that nobody will be able to access the shielded content. The feature may be useful in a number of scenarios - if only a few people need to be able to see certain files, if you are creating an Internet site and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Website Hosting

Setting up a password-protected area will take just several mouse clicks and a few seconds if you host your sites within a shared website hosting account with our company. You shall not have to do anything difficult - you will need to select a domain/subdomain, to choose which folder under it should be protected, and then to input the login name and password that'll be used to access that folder. When a number of individuals need their own login credentials, there will not be a problem to set up several different usernames with access to the very same folder. All protected folders shall appear with a padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you will always know where this function is active. If you would like to deactivate the protection feature for any folder, you can deactivate it from the same exact section of the CP in which you have enabled it.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to protect any content 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 have to type in any code at any time. You will simply have to select one of the domains/subdomains which you have in the hosting account and to pick which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can enter the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be good to go. The protection will be turned on at once, so anyone that attempts to access the freshly protected folder will have to type in the accurate login info. If a number of individuals should be able to open precisely the same content, you could set up a separate username for each.
