If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can switch on password protection for a given folder - either the main website folder or a different one below it. If this function is turned on, a pop-up will appear each and every time somebody attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected only the domain.com folder. If the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any way to get around this restriction, so you can be sure that nobody shall be able access the secured content. The option could be beneficial in a number of scenarios - if only a few people must be able to see specific files, if you are creating an Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, and so on.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Web Hosting

All of our Linux shared web hosting plans include an incredibly convenient tool which will allow you to secure any folder within your account from unauthorized access with simply two mouse clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia hosting CP, you'll simply have to go to the Password Protection section, to pick the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that needs to be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to enter the username and the password that should be used in order to access the content in question. The feature shall be activated immediately, so in case you attempt to open the folder/website, you'll be prompted to type in the login information. You could create or remove numerous usernames for the same folder, if necessary. If you go to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be marked with a tiny padlock icon.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll be able to protect any content that you've uploaded using our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it's a part of, so you shall not need to enter any code at any time. You will only need to choose one of the domains/subdomains you have in the website hosting account and to choose which folder must be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You can then type in the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be ready. The protection shall be switched on immediately, so anyone who attempts to access the recently secured folder will have to type in the correct login info. When various individuals must be able to access the exact same content, you could set up a separate username for each one.
