If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you'll be able to enable password protection for a specific folder - either the main Internet site folder or a different one below it. If this function is turned on, a pop-up shall appear each and every time anyone 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 shall appear and there isn't any method of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one shall be able access the shielded content. The function can be useful in numerous situations - if only some individuals should be able to see certain 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 come with a really handy tool that'll permit you to secure any folder within your account from unauthorized access with simply two mouse clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia web hosting CP, you'll just have to go to the Password Protection section, to choose the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which has to be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type the username and the password that must be used to access the content in question. The feature will be turned on at once, so in case you make an effort to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to type in the login info. You could set up or remove multiple usernames for the same folder, if necessary. If you check out the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be shown with a tiny padlock icon.
