If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to enable password protection for a particular folder - either the main website folder or any other one below it. In case this option is enabled, a pop-up will appear every time someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured the domain.com folder. When the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no method of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The function could be useful in a variety of situations - if only a number of people must be able to see particular files, if you are building a website and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so on.
Password Protected Directories in Website Hosting
If you use any of our website hosting
plans, you can make password-protected areas easily even if you have no experience with this kind of matters. We have incorporated an incredibly easy-to-use point-and-click tool in the Hepsia Control Panel, offered with all accounts, so you shall be able to protect any folder within just seconds. You will only have to select a domain or a subdomain and the exact folder which has to be protected (the main one or a subfolder), and then to type the desired username and password that'll be used to access the folder in question at some point. Each and every protected folder will have a padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see easily what content is secured and what is not. When necessary, you can create several different sets of login details for the same folder.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
Securing any folder with a password shall be very simple if you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server
account with us. A user-friendly tool, that's built into the Hepsia CP, will enable you to pick the exact folder that you want to protect with a few clicks and all you will have to enter shall be the username and the password which will be used to access it later. You won't encounter any troubles even if you have not had a web hosting account before, due to the fact that you do not need any previous knowledge or programming skills to enable the function. If you repeat the same very simple steps, you will be able to set up different usernames for the very same password-protected area, so many people will be able to access a particular folder with their own login details. You'll be able to see the secured folders very easily either in the very same section of the Control Panel or inside the File Manager section where you'll detect them by their small padlock icons.
