If you'd like to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you could switch on password protection for a certain folder - either the main Internet site folder or any other one below it. When this feature is active, a pop-up will appear every time anyone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected just the domain.com folder. If the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no method of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that nobody will be able to access the shielded content. The feature could be beneficial in a number of cases - if only certain people must be able to see particular files, if you are building a site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.

When you use any of our shared web hosting products, you shall be able to make password-protected areas easily even if you have zero experience with this sort of matters. We have built in an extremely easy-to-use point-and-click tool in the Hepsia CP, offered with all accounts, so you shall be able to shield any folder within just a few seconds. You'll only have to choose a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder which has to be secured (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to input the desired username and password which will be used to access the folder in question when you need it. Each protected folder shall have padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you shall be able to see instantly what content is secured and what's not.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to set up password protection for any content that you have in your semi-dedicated server account. We've integrated 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 mouse clicks and without any difficulties, even if you're not quite tech-savvy. You'll simply need to select the hostname (domain or subdomain), the particular folder that should be protected (the main folder or a subfolder) plus the login name and password. The protection will take effect instantly, so if you make an attempt to open the password-protected URL inside your browser, you will have to enter the newly created login details in order to proceed. Additionally, you'll be able to give different usernames for the exact same folder to a number of people, so you will not have to share the same login details with everybody. Each password-protected folder shall have a compact padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you shall be able to recognize this sort of folders with ease.
