If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you could switch on password protection for a certain folder - either the primary site folder or another one below it. In case this feature is active, a pop-up shall appear every time somebody attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured the domain.com folder. If the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any way to get around this restriction, so you can be sure that no one will be able to access the secured content. The feature could be beneficial in various scenarios - if only some individuals should be able to see specific files, if you are building an Internet site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, etc.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Website Hosting
All of our shared website hosting services include an incredibly handy tool that will permit you to secure any folder inside your account from unauthorized access with only two clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will simply have to visit the Password Protection section, to select the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which has to be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type in the username and the password that should be used in order to access the content in question. The feature shall be active instantly, so if you make an effort to open the folder/website, you will be prompted to type in the login credentials. You can set up or remove multiple usernames for the very same folder, if required. If you check out the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be marked with a small padlock icon.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall be able to protect any content which you have uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's a part of, so you will not need to input any code at any time. You will simply need to pick one of the domains/subdomains which you have inside the web hosting account and to pick which folder should be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then type in the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be all set. The protection shall be activated instantly, so anyone who attempts to access the newly secured folder will have to input the accurate login info. If various people have to be able to open the same content, you could set up a separate username for each of them.
