If you would like keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to enable password protection for a specific folder - either the main Internet site folder or any other one below it. Whenever this feature is enabled, a pop-up shall appear anytime someone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured just the domain.com folder. In case the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no method of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that no one will be able to access the secured content. The function can be beneficial in numerous situations - if only certain people must be able to see particular files, if you work on an Internet site and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Hosting

When you use any of our hosting solutions, you can make password-protected areas without difficulty even if you don't have any experience with this type of matters. We have incorporated a really easy-to-use point-and-click tool in the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts, so you will be able to secure any folder within merely seconds. You'll only have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder which has to be protected (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to input the desired username and password that will be used to access the folder in question in the future. Each secured folder shall have padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you will be able to see immediately what content is secured and what is not. If required, you can create several different sets of login credentials for the same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Protecting any folder with a password shall be really easy if you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account with us. A user-friendly tool, which is built into the Hepsia CP, will enable you to choose the exact folder you would like to protect with a couple of mouse clicks and all you'll need to type will be the username and the password that'll be used to access it subsequently. You'll not encounter any problems even if you haven't had a hosting account before, considering that you do not need any previous knowledge or programming skills to activate the feature. If you repeat the same basic steps, you will be able to set up different usernames for the very same password-protected area, so a number of people will be able to access a particular folder with their own login credentials. You shall be able to see the protected folders conveniently either in precisely the same section of the Control Panel or in the File Manager section where you shall detect them by their tiny padlock icons.
