If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you are able to switch on password protection for a specific folder - either the main Internet site folder or any other one below it. When this function is turned on, a pop-up will appear each and every time a person attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured only the domain.com folder. In case the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any way of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody will be able to access the protected content. The function could be helpful in various scenarios - if only a few people should be able to see specific files, if you are building a website and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Website Hosting

Creating a password-protected area shall take merely a few clicks and a few seconds if you host your Internet sites within a website hosting account with our company. You will not need to do anything difficult - you will need to choose a domain/subdomain, to choose which folder under it should be protected, and then to input the login name and password which will be used to access that folder. When a number of individuals need their own login details, there will not be a problem to create several different usernames with access to the same folder. All secured folders shall appear with a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you'll always know where this function is activated. If you wish to turn off the protection function for any folder, you can disable it from the exact same section of the Control Panel where you have enabled it.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to set up password protection for any content which you have inside your semi-dedicated server account. We have added an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which you will be able to switch on the feature with a number of clicks and without any difficulties, even if you're not quite tech-savvy. You'll only have to select the hostname (domain or subdomain), the specific folder that should be protected (the main folder or a subfolder) and the login name and password. The protection shall take effect instantly, so if you attempt to open the password-protected URL inside your Internet browser, you'll have to input the newly created login details before you can proceed. You'll also be able to give different usernames for the same folder to a number of people, so you will not have to share the same login details with anybody. Any password-protected folder shall have a compact padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you will be able to recognize such folders in no time.
