If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you'll be able to enable password protection for a particular folder - either the primary site folder or a different one below it. Whenever this option is activated, a pop-up will appear anytime anyone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured just the domain.com folder. In case the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody shall be able access the secured content. The feature can be useful in a number of cases - if only some people should be able to see particular files, if you are building a website and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Website Hosting

Setting up a password-protected area will take merely a couple of clicks and a few seconds if you host your websites in a cloud website hosting account with us. You will not need to do anything difficult - you'll need to choose a domain/subdomain, to pick which folder under it should be secured, and then to type the login name and password that'll be used to access that folder. If a number of people require their own login credentials, there will not be a problem to set up several different usernames with access to the very same folder. All protected folders shall appear with a padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you will always know where this function is enabled. If you want to disable the protection feature for any folder, you can deactivate it from the exact same section of the CP where you have enabled it.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall be able to secure any content that you've uploaded using our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it's a part of, so you will not need to write any code at any time. You'll only need to pick one of the domains/subdomains you have inside the hosting account and to choose which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can enter the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be ready. The protection shall be turned on at once, so anyone that tries to access the recently protected folder shall have to enter the accurate login details. In case several people must be able to open the exact same content, you could make a separate username for each one.
