If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you are able to activate password protection for a given folder - either the main site folder or any other one below it. In case this function is activated, a pop-up shall appear anytime anyone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured the domain.com folder. In case the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no way to get around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody will be able to access the shielded content. The option could be useful in a number of scenarios - if only a few people should be able to see particular files, if you are building an Internet site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so on.

Password Protected Directories in Web Hosting

All our web hosting feature a very useful tool that will permit you to secure any folder within your account from unauthorized access with only 2 mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia website hosting CP, you'll just have to navigate to the Password Protection section, to select 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 have to be used so as to access the content in question. The feature will be activated instantly, so if you try to open the folder/website, you will be prompted to input the login details. You could set up or remove numerous usernames for the same folder, if needed. If you check out the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be shown with a tiny padlock icon.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to create password protection for any content you have in your semi-dedicated server account. We have integrated an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel via which you shall be able to switch on the function with a few clicks and with no problems, even if you are not quite tech-savvy. You'll simply need to pick the hostname (domain or subdomain), the exact folder that must be secured (the main folder or a subfolder) plus the login name and password. The protection shall take effect right away, so if you attempt to open the password-protected URL in your web browser, you'll have to enter the newly created login details before you can proceed. You'll also be able to give different usernames for the same folder to a number of individuals, so you will not need to share the same login credentials with anybody. Each password-protected folder shall have a compact padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you shall be able to recognize this type of folders easily.
