If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you can enable password protection for a specific folder - either the primary site folder or any other one below it. If this function is enabled, a pop-up shall appear anytime a person tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected just the domain.com folder. When the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any method of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody shall be able access the secured content. The feature could be helpful in a variety of cases - if only certain people should be able to see certain files, if you work on a site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so on.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting

When you use any of our shared hosting packages, you can make password-protected areas with ease even if you have zero experience with such matters. We've incorporated a very easy-to-use point-and-click tool into the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts, so you shall be able to shield any folder within just a few seconds. You will have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the particular folder which has to be secured (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to type in the username and password which will be used to access the folder in question later on. Any secured folder shall have padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see at a glance what content is secured and what is not. If required, you can make several different sets of login credentials for the same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll be able to protect any content that you have uploaded via our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is part of, so you'll not have to input any code at any time. You will simply need to choose one of the domains/subdomains which you have in the website 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 enter the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be ready. The protection shall be enabled right away, so anyone that tries to access the recently secured folder will have to type in the right login details. In cases where several people must be able to access exactly the same content, you could make a separate username for each of them.
