If you would like keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to activate password protection for a certain folder - either the main Internet site folder or a different one below it. In case this feature is activated, a pop-up shall appear anytime somebody tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured only the domain.com folder. In case the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any way of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that no one will be able to access the secured content. The feature may be helpful in numerous cases - if only certain people need to be able to see certain files, if you are building an Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, and so forth.
Password Protected Directories in Website Hosting
Setting up a password-protected area shall take no more than a couple of mouse clicks and a few seconds when you host your sites within a website hosting
account with our company. You will not have to do anything complex - you will need to choose a domain/subdomain, to select which folder under it has to be protected, and then to type in the login name and password that'll be used to access that folder. If a number of individuals need their own login credentials, there won't be a problem to make a variety of different usernames with access to the very same folder. All protected folders shall appear with a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you will always know where this option is enabled. If you'd like to turn off the security function for any folder, you can disable it from the same section of the CP in which you have enabled it.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to set up password protection for any content which you have inside your semi-dedicated server
account. We've included an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which you will be able to switch on the function with several mouse clicks and without any troubles, even if you are not quite tech-savvy. You will simply need to pick the hostname (domain or subdomain), the particular folder which must be protected (the main folder or a subfolder) and the login name and password. The protection shall take effect at once, so if you make an effort to open the password-protected URL in your browser, you'll need to type the newly created login details before you proceed. Additionally, you'll be able to give different usernames for the exact same folder to a number of people, so you'll not need to share the same login details with everyone. Any password-protected folder will have a compact padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you'll be able to recognize such folders with ease.
