If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to enable password protection for a particular folder - either the main website folder or any other one below it. In case this feature is turned on, a pop-up shall appear each time anyone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected only the domain.com folder. When the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no way of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that no one shall be able access the secured content. The feature can be helpful in numerous cases - if only certain people must be able to see particular files, if you are building an Internet site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so on.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Website Hosting
With the password protection tool provided with each cloud website hosting plan that we provide, you will be able to shield any content that you have in your account with merely a few clicks. Because the tool is a component of our ground breaking Hepsia Control Panel, it provides the exact same uncomplicated interface and you'll not need any special skills to use it. When you visit the Password Protection section, you'll need to choose one of the domains or subdomains that you have in the account and then decide whether the protection should be switched on for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password that you'd like and you will be all set. A small padlock icon inside the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the very same way you'll be able to add several usernames and passwords for the same folder if you'd like several people to have their own login credentials.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You shall be able to set up password protection for any content you have within your semi-dedicated server account. We've added an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel where you will be able to activate the function with a few clicks and without any difficulties, even if you're not quite tech-savvy. You will only have to choose the hostname (domain or subdomain), the specific folder that should be protected (the primary folder or a subfolder) and the login name and password. The protection shall take effect right away, so if you try to open the password-protected URL in your web browser, you'll need to type in the newly created login credentials before you can proceed. Additionally, you will be able to give different usernames for the exact same folder to a number of people, so you will not have to share the same login details with anyone. Any password-protected folder will have a tiny padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you'll be able to recognize this sort of folders with ease.
