If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could enable password protection for a certain folder - either the main website folder or another one below it. If this feature is enabled, a pop-up shall appear each time a person 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 secured only the domain.com folder. If the credentials 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 nobody will be able to access the protected content. The function can be useful in a variety of cases - if only a number of people should be able to see particular files, if you work on a website and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, and so on.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Web Hosting
All of our cloud web hosting plans
feature an exceptionally handy tool that will enable you to protect any folder within your account from unauthorized access with simply 2 clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia web hosting CP, you'll just have to go to the Password Protection section, to pick the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which should be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to enter the username and the password which should be used to access the content in question. The function shall be turned on at once, so if you make an effort to open the folder/website, you will be prompted to type in the login credentials. You could create or remove many usernames for the exact same folder, if needed. If you check out the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be shown with a little padlock icon.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to set up password protection for any content you have inside your semi-dedicated server
account. We have added an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel using which you will be able to enable the function with a few clicks and without any troubles, even if you're not really tech-savvy. You'll simply have to choose the hostname (domain or subdomain), the exact folder which should be protected (the primary folder or a subfolder) as well as the login name and password. The protection will take effect instantly, so if you make an effort to open the password-protected URL in your browser, you will need to input the newly created login details before you can proceed. Additionally, you will be able to give different usernames for the very same folder to a number of people, so you will not need to share the same login details with anyone. Each password-protected folder shall have a tiny padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you will be able to recognize such folders easily.
