If you wish to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can switch on password protection for a specific folder - either the primary site folder or another one below it. When this function is activated, a pop-up shall appear every time somebody attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured just the domain.com folder. If the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no method of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that no one shall be able access the protected content. The function could be useful in various situations - if only some people must be able to see certain files, if you work on a site and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so on.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting

When you use any of our shared hosting solutions, you can create password-protected areas with ease even if you have no experience with this sort of matters. We have included an extremely easy-to-use point-and-click tool in the Hepsia CP, supplied with all accounts, so you will be able to shield any folder within a matter of seconds. You will have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the particular folder which has to be secured (the main one or a subfolder), and then to enter the username and password which will be used to access the folder in question when you need it. Any protected folder shall have padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see at a glance what content is protected and what's not. If necessary, you may create a number of sets of login credentials for precisely the same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll be able to protect any content you have uploaded using our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's part of, so you shall not have to enter any code at any time. You'll only need to pick one of the domains/subdomains that you have inside the web hosting account and to choose which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can type in the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be all set. The protection shall be activated right away, so anyone that tries to access the newly secured folder will have to input the correct login details. In cases where a number of people must be able to access exactly the same content, you could set up a separate username for each.
