If you would like keep some content hidden from the public eye, you'll be able to enable password protection for a particular folder - either the primary site folder or another one below it. When this feature is active, a pop-up shall appear every time someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected only the domain.com folder. When the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any method of getting around this restriction, so you can be sure that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The function could be useful in numerous scenarios - if only a number of individuals need to be able to see specific files, if you are developing an Internet site and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Web Hosting

All our shared web hosting include an incredibly useful tool that'll allow you to secure any folder within your account from unauthorized access with just 2 clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia web hosting CP, you will only have to navigate to the Password Protection section, to select the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that has to be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to enter the username and the password that must be used so as to access the content in question. The function will be activated at once, so if you attempt to open the folder/website, you'll be prompted to input the login info. You can create or remove multiple usernames for the same folder, if required. If you check out the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be shown with a small padlock icon.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to create password protection for any content you have within your semi-dedicated server account. We've added an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel using which you will be able to enable the function with several clicks and with no difficulties, even if you're not quite tech-savvy. You will only have to select the hostname (domain or subdomain), the specific folder that has to be secured (the main folder or a subfolder) as well as the login name and password. The protection shall take effect at once, so if you try to open the password-protected URL in your web browser, you'll need to type the newly created login details before you can proceed. You will also be able to give different usernames for the exact same folder to a number of individuals, so you'll not have to share the same login credentials with everybody. Any password-protected folder shall have a little padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you shall be able to recognize such folders easily.
