If you wish to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to enable password protection for a particular folder - either the main site folder or any other one below it. If this feature is enabled, a pop-up will appear every time anyone tries 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 the domain.com folder. In case the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any method of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that no one shall be able access the shielded content. The function may be useful in a variety of scenarios - if only some people should be able to see specific files, if you are building an Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, and so forth.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting
All of our Linux shared hosting include a very convenient tool that will enable you to shield any folder within your account from unauthorized access with simply two mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll only have to go to the Password Protection section, to choose the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which needs to be protected - 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 feature will be turned on instantly, so in case you make an effort to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to input the login credentials. You could set up or remove numerous usernames for the same folder, if needed. If you go to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be marked with a tiny padlock icon.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to secure any content that you've uploaded via our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it is a part of, so you'll not have to input any code at any time. You will only have to select one of the domains/subdomains you have inside the hosting account and to choose which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can input the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be all set. The protection will be activated straightaway, so anyone who tries to access the newly secured folder will have to input the accurate login information. In cases where a number of people have to be able to access precisely the same content, you can create a separate username for each one.
