If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you can switch on password protection for a given folder - either the main site folder or another one below it. If this function is activated, a pop-up will appear anytime anyone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login details will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have protected only the domain.com folder. When the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one will be able to access the shielded content. The feature may be helpful in a variety of situations - if only certain people must be able to see specific files, if you work on an Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, and so forth.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting
All of our Linux shared hosting packages include an exceptionally handy tool which will allow you to protect any folder in your account from unauthorized access with just two clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll simply have to visit the Password Protection section, to pick the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that should be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to enter the username and the password that must be used in order to access the content in question. The feature shall be turned on immediately, so if you make an effort to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to type in the login credentials. You can create or remove numerous usernames for the very same folder, if required. If you navigate to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be marked 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 shield any content that you've uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it's part of, so you shall not have to write any code at any time. You'll only have to select one of the domains/subdomains that you have inside the web hosting account and to choose which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. After that you can type the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be good to go. The protection will be enabled immediately, so anyone who tries to access the freshly protected folder shall have to type in the accurate login details. When several individuals should be able to open the same content, you can create a separate username for each.
