If you would like keep some content concealed from the public eye, you could activate password protection for a certain folder - either the main Internet site folder or any other one below it. When this option is enabled, a pop-up shall 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 details shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured only the domain.com folder. If the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no way to get around this restriction, so you can be sure that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The function could be beneficial in various scenarios - if only a number of people must be able to see specific files, if you are creating a website and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Web Hosting

When you use any of our web hosting plans, you'll be able to create password-protected areas without difficulty even if you have no experience with such matters. We have incorporated an extremely easy-to-use point-and-click tool in the Hepsia CP, provided with all accounts, so you will be able to protect any folder within merely seconds. You will have to select a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder which should be protected (the main one or a subfolder), and then to type the desired username and password that'll be used to access the folder in question in the future. Any secured folder will have a padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see at a glance what content is protected and what's not. When necessary, you could make a number of sets of login credentials for the exact same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to secure any content you have uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's part of, so you'll not need to input any code at any time. You will simply need to choose one of the domains/subdomains you have inside the website hosting account and to choose which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. After that you can enter the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be all set. The protection shall be switched on instantly, so anyone that tries to access the newly secured folder will have to enter the accurate login information. If a number of people have to be able to access precisely the same content, you can create a separate username for each.
