If you'd like to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to enable password protection for a particular folder - either the primary Internet site folder or another one below it. In case this function is enabled, a pop-up shall appear each and every time someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured the domain.com folder. When the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no way to get 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 situations - if only a few individuals should be able to see specific files, if you are building a website and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, etc.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting

With the password protection tool that is included with every shared hosting package which we provide, you'll be able to shield any content that you have inside your account with simply a few clicks. Due to the fact that the tool is a component of our revolutionary Hepsia Control Panel, it features exactly the same uncomplicated interface and you shall not require any special skills to use it. As soon as you visit the Password Protection section, you will have to select one of the domains or subdomains which you have in the account and then choose whether the protection should be switched on for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then type in the username and the password you want and you will be all set. A tiny padlock icon in the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the very same way you shall be able to include numerous usernames and passwords for the same folder if you would like several people to have their own login credentials.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to secure any content which you have uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it's part of, so you shall not have to type in any code at any time. You'll only need to select one of the domains/subdomains which you have in the web hosting account and to select which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can enter the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be all set. The protection will be activated at once, so anyone that tries to access the newly secured folder shall have to enter the correct login details. If a number of individuals have to be able to access precisely the same content, you could set up a separate username for each one.
