If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you'll be able to activate password protection for a given folder - either the main Internet site folder or a different one below it. When this option is activated, a pop-up shall appear each and every time a person tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured the domain.com folder. In case the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no method of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one will be able to access the secured content. The function can be beneficial in a variety of situations - if only a few people must be able to see particular files, if you are building a site and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, and so forth.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Website Hosting
All of our Linux shared website hosting include a really convenient tool which will permit you to protect any folder inside your account from unauthorized access with just two mouse clicks. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia web hosting CP, you will simply have to visit the Password Protection section, to pick the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that needs to be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to input the username and the password which have to be used in order to access the content in question. The feature will be turned on at once, so in case you attempt to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to type in the login details. You may create or remove numerous usernames for the very same folder, if needed. When you navigate to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be shown with a tiny padlock icon.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Securing any folder with a password will be very easy if you host your websites inside a semi-dedicated server account with us. A user-friendly tool, that is integrated into the Hepsia CP, will allow you to choose the exact folder you would like to protect with a couple of mouse clicks and all you will have to enter will be the username and the password which will be used to access it afterwards. You'll not encounter any issues even if you have not had a hosting account before, considering that you don't need any previous knowledge or programming skills to enable the function. If you repeat the same simple steps, you shall be able to create various usernames for the very same password-protected area, so a number of people will be able to access a certain folder with their own login credentials. You shall be able to see the secured folders instantly either in the exact same section of the CP or inside the File Manager section where you'll detect them by their compact padlock icons.
