If you would like keep some content hidden from the public eye, you are able to activate password protection for a certain folder - either the primary website folder or a different one below it. If this option is active, a pop-up shall appear every time someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured just the domain.com folder. If 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 sure that nobody will be able to access the shielded content. The function could be beneficial in a variety of cases - if only a few individuals should be able to see specific files, if you work on an Internet site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so on.

Password Protected Directories in Website Hosting

All our Linux website hosting feature a really useful tool that'll allow you to shield any folder inside your account from unauthorized access with only 2 clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia web hosting CP, you'll only have to visit the Password Protection section, to pick the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which needs to be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to input the username and the password which must be used so as to access the content in question. The feature shall be activated immediately, so in case you try to open the folder/website, you'll be prompted to enter the login info. You may set up or remove many usernames for the same folder, if needed. When you navigate to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be shown with a tiny padlock icon.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to protect any content you have uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it's a part of, so you'll not have to input any code at any time. You will only need to choose one of the domains/subdomains which you have in the hosting account and to determine which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can input 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 switched on instantly, so anyone who tries to access the newly protected folder will have to input the correct login details. In cases where several people have to be able to access precisely the same content, you could set up a separate username for each.
