If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you could switch on password protection for a certain folder - either the primary site folder or any other one below it. When this feature is active, a pop-up will appear every time somebody 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 when you have protected the domain.com folder. If the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no way to get around this restriction, so you can rest assured that nobody shall be able access the shielded content. The option could be beneficial in numerous cases - if only some people need to be able to see certain files, if you are creating a site and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, etc.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Web Hosting
Setting up a password-protected area shall take merely a few mouse clicks and a few seconds if you host your websites inside a cloud web hosting account with our company. You won't need to do anything difficult - you'll have to pick a domain/subdomain, to pick which folder under it should be protected, and then to type the login name and password that will be used to access that folder. If a number of people need their own login details, there will not be a problem to set up numerous different usernames with access to the same folder. All secured folders will appear with a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you'll always know where this option is active. If you want to turn off the security feature for any folder, you can disable it from the exact same section of the CP where you have enabled it.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to create password protection for any content which you have inside your semi-dedicated server account. We have included an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel through which you will be able to enable the feature with several clicks and without any difficulties, even if you are not quite tech-savvy. You'll only need to choose the hostname (domain or subdomain), the particular folder that must be protected (the primary folder or a subfolder) and the login name and password. The protection shall take effect at once, so if you make an effort to open the password-protected URL inside your web browser, you will need to type the newly created login credentials before you proceed. You will also be able to give different usernames for the exact same folder to a number of people, so you'll not have to share the same login details with everyone. Each password-protected folder shall have a tiny padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you shall be able to recognize this kind of folders easily.
