If you'd like to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can activate password protection for a given folder - either the primary Internet site folder or a different one below it. In case this option is active, a pop-up will appear every time someone attempts 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 secured just the domain.com folder. If the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any way to get around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one will be able to access the protected content. The function can be helpful in numerous scenarios - if only some individuals must be able to see specific files, if you work on a site and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, and so on.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

All our Linux cloud hosting include an exceptionally useful tool which will allow you to protect any folder within your account from unauthorized access with just 2 mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia web hosting CP, you will just have to visit the Password Protection section, to select the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which needs to be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to input the username and the password that should be used to access the content in question. The function will be activated at once, so in case you attempt to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to enter the login details. You could create or remove a number of usernames for the very same folder, if necessary. If you check out the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be marked with a tiny padlock icon.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to protect any content you have uploaded via our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is a part of, so you'll not need to enter any code at any time. You will simply have to choose one of the domains/subdomains which you have inside the hosting account and to choose which folder must be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You can then enter the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be good to go. The protection will be switched on instantly, so anyone that tries to access the recently secured folder will have to input the right login info. In cases where various individuals have to be able to access precisely the same content, you could set up a separate username for each.
