If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you can activate password protection for a particular folder - either the primary site folder or any other one below it. In case this function is turned on, a pop-up will appear anytime anyone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured just the domain.com folder. In case the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be sure that no one shall be able access the shielded content. The option can be beneficial in numerous scenarios - if only a few individuals should be able to see specific files, if you work on an Internet site and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, etc.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Web Hosting
All our shared web hosting plans come with an exceptionally useful tool that will enable you to protect any folder inside your account from unauthorized access with just two clicks. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia hosting CP, you'll simply have to navigate 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 input the username and the password which must be used so as to access the content in question. The feature shall be turned on immediately, so in case you make an effort to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to enter the login credentials. You may set up or remove numerous usernames for the same folder, if necessary. When you go to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be shown with a compact padlock icon.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall be able to secure any content that you've uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it is a part of, so you shall not have to input any code at any time. You will simply need to select one of the domains/subdomains which you have inside the hosting account and to pick which folder must be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. After that you can input the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be good to go. The protection shall be enabled straightaway, so anyone who tries to access the newly protected folder will have to enter the correct login info. If several individuals must be able to open precisely the same content, you can create a separate username for each one.
