If you wish to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you could activate password protection for a specific folder - either the primary website folder or any other one below it. In case this option is active, a pop-up shall appear each and every time somebody attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have protected the domain.com folder. If 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 will be able to access the secured content. The option may be useful in numerous scenarios - if only some individuals should be able to see specific files, if you are creating a site and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, etc.

Password Protected Directories in Website Hosting

All of our website hosting include an incredibly convenient tool that'll enable you to shield any folder in your account from unauthorized access with simply two clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll only have to go to the Password Protection section, to select the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which has to be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to input the username and the password which should be used so as to access the content in question. The feature will be activated at once, so in case you attempt to open the folder/website, you will be prompted to input the login information. You can set up or remove numerous usernames for the very same folder, if needed. If you check out the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be indicated by a small padlock icon.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to set up password protection for any content which you have within your semi-dedicated server account. We have included an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel using which you will be able to enable the feature with a number of clicks and without any troubles, even if you're not really tech-savvy. You'll simply have to pick the hostname (domain or subdomain), the exact folder which needs to be secured (the primary folder or a subfolder) as well as the login name and password. The protection will take effect at once, so if you make an attempt to open the password-protected URL within your web browser, you'll need to type the newly created login details before you proceed. You will also be able to give different usernames for the same folder to a number of individuals, so you'll not need to share the same login credentials with anybody. Any password-protected folder will have a tiny padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you will be able to recognize this type of folders effortlessly.
