If you wish to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can switch on password protection for a particular folder - either the primary website folder or any other one below it. In case this feature is turned on, a pop-up shall appear each time a person tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured just the domain.com folder. When the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be sure that no one will be able to access the secured content. The function could be useful in various cases - if only certain people must be able to see certain files, if you are building an Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, and so forth.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting
When you use any of our cloud hosting packages, you will be able to make password-protected areas easily even if you have zero experience with this sort of matters. We have built in an incredibly easy-to-use point-and-click tool into the Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with all accounts, so you'll be able to shield any folder within just seconds. You'll only have to select a domain or a subdomain and the particular folder that has to be protected (the main one or a subfolder), and then to type the desired username and password that will be used to access the folder in question at some point. Every protected folder shall have padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you will be able to see easily what content is protected and what's not. If needed, you can make a number of different sets of login credentials for the same folder.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to protect any content you have uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it is a part of, so you shall not need to input any code at any time. You will simply need to choose one of the domains/subdomains you have in the website hosting account and to determine which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. After that you can type in the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be ready. The protection shall be enabled at once, so anyone that attempts to access the newly protected folder shall have to enter the correct login details. When various individuals should be able to open exactly the same content, you could make a separate username for each one.
