If you would like keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to activate password protection for a particular folder - either the main Internet site folder or another one below it. In case this option is enabled, a pop-up shall appear each time someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login info will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured just the domain.com folder. When the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that no one will be able to access the shielded content. The option could be beneficial in a number of situations - if only some people should be able to see specific files, if you are creating 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 that we offer, you'll be able to secure any content that you have inside your account with just a few clicks. Because the tool is a component of our revolutionary Hepsia Control Panel, it has the exact same uncomplicated interface and you shall not need any special skills to use it. When you navigate to the Password Protection section, you'll have to pick one of the domains or subdomains you have in the account and then choose whether the protection should be activated for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then enter the username and the password you want and you'll be all set to go. A little padlock symbol in the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the very same way you will be able to include 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

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to shield any content that you've uploaded via our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it is a part of, so you will not need to input any code at any time. You will only need to pick one of the domains/subdomains that you have inside the web hosting account and to pick which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You can then input the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be ready. The protection will be enabled at once, so anybody who attempts to access the recently protected folder shall have to type in the correct login details. When several individuals have to be able to open precisely the same content, you could set up a separate username for each.
