If you'd like to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can enable password protection for a specific folder - either the primary website folder or a different one below it. Whenever this feature is activated, a pop-up will appear each and every time anyone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected 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 positive that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The option could be useful in a number of cases - if only certain people must be able to see specific files, if you are building an Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, etc.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting
With the password protection tool that comes with every single cloud hosting package which we offer, you shall be able to secure any content which you have within your account with simply a few clicks. Because the tool is a component of our ground breaking Hepsia CP, it has exactly the same simple interface and you will not need any special skills to use it. When you go to the Password Protection section, you'll need to choose one of the domains or subdomains which you have in the account and then decide whether the protection should be switched on for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password that you'd like and you shall be all set. A tiny padlock icon within the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the same exact way you'll be able to include numerous usernames and passwords for the same folder if you want several people to have their own login credentials.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
It will take several clicks to activate the password protection feature for any folder that you have, when you use one of our semi-dedicated services. We have an exceptionally practical tool, which has a user-friendly point-and-click interface and which can be used by individuals without experience. It's a part of the Hepsia Control Panel, which you'll get to manage your new account and as soon as you log in and navigate to the Password Protection section, you'll be able to pick the domain or subdomain which should be secured and then the exact folder - either the primary folder or any subfolder under it. You'll also see 2 boxes in which you will need to enter the login name and the password that will be needed to access the folder in question and you will be all set. By following the very same steps, you are able to set up several different login credentials for the same folder to give several people their own username/password. All protected folders will have a small padlock sign in the File Manager section.
