If you'd like to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you are able to enable password protection for a particular folder - either the main Internet site folder or a different one below it. When this option is activated, a pop-up shall appear anytime someone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected just the domain.com folder. In case the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no way to get around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The feature could be useful in numerous cases - if only certain people must be able to see particular files, if you are building a website and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so on.
Password Protected Directories in Website Hosting
Creating a password-protected area shall take merely a few clicks and a few seconds if you host your sites within a website hosting account with us. You will not have to do anything challenging - you will have to choose a domain/subdomain, to pick which folder under it has to be secured, and then to enter the login name and password that'll be used to access that folder. In case a number of people need their own login details, there won't be a problem to create a number of different usernames with access to the very same folder. All secured folders shall appear with a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you'll always know where this option is enabled. If you want to disable the security function for any folder, you can deactivate it from the exact same section of the Control Panel where you have enabled it.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Protecting any folder with a password will be quite simple if you host your websites inside a semi-dedicated server account with our company. A user-friendly tool, that's incorporated into the Hepsia CP, will enable you to select the specific folder you'd like to secure with a couple of clicks and all you will need to input will be the username and the password that will be used to access it afterwards. You'll not experience any problems even if you haven't had a website hosting account before, because you do not need any previous knowledge or computer programming skills to enable the function. If you repeat the same very simple steps, you shall be able to create various usernames for the same password-protected area, so lots of people shall be able to access a given folder with their own login details. You shall be able to see the protected folders at a glance either in precisely the same section of the CP or inside the File Manager section where you'll identify them by their tiny padlock icons.
