If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could activate password protection for a particular folder - either the primary website folder or any other one below it. If this option is turned on, a pop-up will appear each and 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 when you have protected just the domain.com folder. In case the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden� message shall appear and there's no way to get around this restriction, so you can be certain that no one will be able to access the protected content. The function can be beneficial in various scenarios - if only some individuals must be able to see particular files, if you are developing a site and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so on.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Web Hosting

All our Linux cloud web hosting plans feature an exceptionally convenient tool that'll allow you to shield any folder in your account from unauthorized access with just two clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia hosting CP, you'll only have to visit the Password Protection section, to pick the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that should be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to enter the username and the password which should be used so as to access the content in question. The function shall be activated at once, so if you try to open the folder/website, you will be prompted to enter the login info. You may create or remove multiple usernames for the same folder, when necessary. When you navigate to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be shown with a compact padlock icon.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to secure any content which you have uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it is a part of, so you'll not need to enter any code at any time. You will only have to select one of the domains/subdomains which you have in the hosting account and to determine which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You can then type the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be ready. The protection will be switched on immediately, so anyone that tries to access the newly secured folder will have to enter the accurate login details. In case various people have to be able to open the exact same content, you could set up a separate username for each one.
