If you'd like to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to switch on password protection for a certain folder - either the primary website folder or another one below it. When this function is active, a pop-up will appear anytime someone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured the domain.com folder. In case the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be sure that no one will be able to access the secured content. The function can be useful in a variety of cases - if only certain people should be able to see certain files, if you work on an Internet site and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, etc.

Password Protected Directories in Hosting

With the password protection tool that is included with each hosting package which we offer, you'll be able to secure any content which you have within your account with just a few clicks. As the tool is a component of our innovative Hepsia Control Panel, it offers the exact same simple interface and you will not require any special skills to use it. As soon as you go to the Password Protection section, you will need to select one of the domains or subdomains that you have inside the account and then decide if the protection should be active for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then enter the username and the password that you'd like and you'll be all set to go. A small padlock icon inside the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the very same way you'll be able to add numerous usernames and passwords for the same folder if you'd like several people to have their own login credentials.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to create password protection for any content that you have inside your semi-dedicated server account. We've integrated an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel where you will be able to activate the function with a number of clicks and with no troubles, even if you're not quite tech-savvy. You will only need to select the hostname (domain or subdomain), the exact folder which must be protected (the primary folder or a subfolder) as well as the login name and password. The protection will take effect instantaneously, so if you make an attempt to open the password-protected URL inside your web browser, you will have to type the newly created login details before you proceed. Additionally, you'll be able to give different usernames for the same folder to a number of people, so you'll not need to share the same login details with everyone. Each password-protected folder will have a compact padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you will be able to recognize this kind of folders easily.
