If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you can activate password protection for a certain folder - either the primary Internet site folder or a different one below it. When this function is activated, a pop-up will appear each and every time anyone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured only the domain.com folder. In case the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The option may be beneficial in a number of situations - if only a number of people need to be able to see certain files, if you are developing a website and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, and so on.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Website Hosting

With the password protection tool provided with every shared website hosting package deal that we provide, you shall be able to protect any content which you have in your account with merely a few clicks. Since the tool is a component of our innovative Hepsia Control Panel, it features the exact same simple interface and you will not need any special skills to use it. As soon as you check out the Password Protection section, you will need to choose one of the domains or subdomains you have in the account and then decide if the protection should be active for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password you want and you shall be ready. A little padlock icon within the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the same exact way you will be able to add 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 Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to shield any content that you've uploaded using our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's part of, so you'll not have to input any code at any time. You'll only need to select one of the domains/subdomains that you have inside the web hosting account and to determine which folder must be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. After that you can enter the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be ready. The protection will be turned on immediately, so anybody who attempts to access the newly protected folder will have to type in the correct login info. In cases where several people should be able to access the same content, you can create a separate username for each.
