If you wish to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can switch on password protection for a given folder - either the primary website folder or another one below it. Whenever this feature is activated, a pop-up will 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 shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have protected just the domain.com folder. If the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no method of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The feature can be beneficial in numerous scenarios - if only a number of individuals must be able to see particular files, if you are creating a website and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, etc.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Website Hosting

All of our shared website hosting plans feature an exceptionally handy tool that'll enable you to shield any folder inside your account from unauthorized access with only 2 mouse clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia hosting CP, you'll simply have to navigate to the Password Protection section, to select the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which has to be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type in the username and the password that have to be used so as to access the content in question. The feature shall be activated straightaway, so if you attempt to open the folder/website, you'll be prompted to type in the login information. You may set up or remove many usernames for the exact same folder, when necessary. If you navigate to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be shown with a compact padlock icon.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall be able to shield any content that you've uploaded using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it is part of, so you shall not have to enter any code at any time. You'll simply have to pick one of the domains/subdomains which you have inside the website hosting account and to pick which folder should be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can type the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be good to go. The protection will be enabled immediately, so anyone who attempts to access the newly secured folder shall have to input the right login information. If a number of individuals have to be able to access precisely the same content, you could set up a separate username for each.
