If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you are able to enable password protection for a particular folder - either the main website folder or a different one below it. When this feature is turned on, a pop-up shall appear each and every time somebody 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 if you have secured only the domain.com folder. If the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that no one will be able to access the protected content. The option could be helpful in a variety of scenarios - if only a number of people need to be able to see particular files, if you are creating a site and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Hosting

All of our Linux hosting include a very useful tool which will allow you to secure any folder within your account from unauthorized access with simply two clicks. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia website hosting CP, you will just have to visit 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 which must be used in order to access the content in question. The feature shall be turned on at once, so if you try to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to input the login details. You can set up or remove many usernames for the very same folder, when necessary. When you navigate to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be indicated by a tiny padlock icon.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall 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 is a part of, so you shall not need to input any code at any time. You will only need to choose one of the domains/subdomains which you have inside the website hosting account and to select which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can type in the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be good to go. The protection shall be turned on straightaway, so anyone that tries to access the freshly secured folder shall have to type in the accurate login information. When a number of individuals have to be able to access exactly the same content, you can create a separate username for each one.
