If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you'll be able to switch on password protection for a particular folder - either the primary site folder or a different one below it. If this option is enabled, a pop-up shall appear each 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 when you have protected the domain.com folder. If 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 sure that nobody shall be able access the secured content. The feature can be beneficial in various scenarios - if only certain people should be able to see specific files, if you work on an Internet site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, etc.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting
Creating a password-protected area shall take only several mouse clicks and a few seconds when you host your Internet sites within a shared hosting
account with our company. You won't need to do anything difficult - you will need to pick a domain/subdomain, to choose which folder under it must be protected, and then to type in the login name and password which will be used to access that folder. If a number of individuals require their own login credentials, there won't be a problem to set up several different usernames with access to the same exact folder. All protected folders will appear with a padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you'll always know where this function is active. If you want to deactivate the security function for any folder, you can disable it from the exact same section of the Control Panel in which you have enabled it.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server
account with us, you shall be able to protect any content that you've uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is a part of, so you will not need to enter any code at any time. You will simply need to select one of the domains/subdomains which you have inside the website hosting account and to pick which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. After that you can type in the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be ready. The protection shall be turned on right away, so anyone that tries to access the freshly protected folder shall have to input the correct login info. If a number of individuals should be able to open the exact same content, you can create a separate username for each.
