If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can enable password protection for a given folder - either the main site folder or another one below it. When this feature is enabled, a pop-up will appear anytime a person tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured just the domain.com folder. If the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any way to get around this restriction, so you can be sure that nobody shall be able access the shielded content. The feature may be useful in a variety of cases - if only a number of 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 is completed, etc.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting

All our shared hosting packages include a very handy tool that will permit you to protect any folder in your account from unauthorized access with just two mouse clicks. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia website hosting CP, you will just have to visit the Password Protection section, to choose the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that should be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to input the username and the password which should be used so as to access the content in question. The function will be activated immediately, so in case you make an effort to open the folder/website, you'll be prompted to enter the login credentials. You can set up or remove numerous usernames for the same folder, if needed. If you go to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be indicated by a little padlock icon.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to shield any content that you have uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it is part of, so you will not need to input any code at any time. You'll simply have to pick one of the domains/subdomains you have inside the web hosting account and to pick which folder should be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You can then enter the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be all set. The protection will be switched on right away, so anyone that attempts to access the recently protected folder will have to input the accurate login information. When a number of individuals have to be able to open the exact same content, you could make a separate username for each one.
