If you'd like to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you are able to activate password protection for a particular folder - either the primary website folder or a different one below it. Whenever this option is enabled, a pop-up shall appear each and 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 shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured only the domain.com folder. In case the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be sure that nobody will be able to access the shielded content. The option may be helpful in a number of situations - if only certain individuals must be able to see particular files, if you are developing a site and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so on.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting
Setting up a password-protected area shall take no more than a few mouse clicks and a few seconds when you host your Internet sites within a cloud hosting account with us. You won't need to do anything complex - you will have to select a domain/subdomain, to pick which folder under it has to be secured, and then to enter the login name and password that will be used to access that folder. In case a number of people need their own login credentials, there will not be a problem to create a number of different usernames with access to the very same folder. All protected folders will appear with a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you'll always know where this option is enabled. If you'd like to turn off the security function for any folder, you can deactivate it from the same section of the Control Panel in which you have enabled it.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to secure any content that you have uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is a part of, so you'll not need to write any code at any time. You will only need to select one of the domains/subdomains which you have inside the web hosting account and to determine which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You can then input the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be ready. The protection shall be turned on straightaway, so anybody who attempts to access the freshly secured folder will have to type in the correct login info. If a number of individuals must be able to access the exact same content, you could set up a separate username for each.
