If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you are able to enable password protection for a particular folder - either the main site folder or any other one below it. If this option is activated, a pop-up will appear each and every time somebody tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured only the domain.com folder. When the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The feature can be helpful in various situations - if only some individuals need to be able to see specific files, if you are developing a website 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 inside your account from unauthorized access with simply 2 clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll just have to navigate to the Password Protection section, to pick the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which needs to be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type the username and the password that have to be used so as to access the content in question. The feature will be activated immediately, so if you make an effort to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to input the login info. You could create or remove numerous usernames for the very same folder, when necessary. If you check out the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be shown with a small padlock icon.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll be able to secure any content you have uploaded using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it is a part of, so you will not need to enter any code at any time. You'll simply have to select one of the domains/subdomains which you have inside the website hosting account and to determine which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You can then enter the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be ready. The protection will be turned on at once, so anyone that attempts to access the newly secured folder will have to input the correct login info. In cases where various people have to be able to access exactly the same content, you could set up a separate username for each of them.
