If you'd like to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could switch on password protection for a certain folder - either the main Internet site folder or any other one below it. If this feature is activated, a pop-up shall appear every time a person attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected only the domain.com folder. If the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any way of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that no one will be able to access the secured content. The option may be beneficial in various scenarios - if only certain individuals must be able to see specific files, if you work on a site and you don't 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 no more than several mouse clicks and a few seconds when you host your sites within a website hosting account with us. You'll not have to do anything complicated - you'll have to choose a domain/subdomain, to select which folder under it has to be protected, and then to type in the login name and password that'll be used to access that folder. In case a number of individuals require their own login details, there shall not be a problem to make numerous different usernames with access to the same folder. All secured folders will appear with a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you shall always know where this feature is active. If you want to deactivate the protection feature for any folder, you can deactivate it from the same exact section of the Control Panel where you have enabled it.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

It will take just a few mouse clicks to turn on the password protection function for any folder that you have, if you use one of our semi-dedicated servers. We have an extremely helpful tool, that has a user-friendly point-and-click interface and which can be used by people with zero experience. It's included in the Hepsia Control Panel, which you will get to manage your new account and when you log in and check out the Password Protection section, you will be able to pick the domain or subdomain which should be protected and then the particular folder - either the primary folder or any subfolder under it. You shall also see 2 boxes in which you will have to input the login name and the password that will be required to access the folder in question and you'll be all set. By following precisely the same steps, you can set up many different login credentials for the same folder to give several people their own username/password. All protected folders will feature a small padlock sign in the File Manager section.
