If you'd like to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can enable password protection for a specific folder - either the main website folder or a different one below it. In case this function is enabled, a pop-up will appear each and every time somebody tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured only the domain.com folder. In case the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any method of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The function may be helpful in a variety of situations - if only some individuals need to be able to see specific files, if you are building an Internet site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so on.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Web Hosting
All our cloud web hosting include a very handy tool that'll allow you to secure any folder in your account from unauthorized access with just 2 mouse clicks. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll simply have to visit the Password Protection section, to select the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that should be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to input the username and the password that must be used to access the content in question. The function shall be active right away, so in case you try to open the folder/website, you'll be prompted to enter the login credentials. You could set up or remove a number of usernames for the very same folder, if required. When you go to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be marked with a compact padlock icon.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall be able to protect any content that you have uploaded using our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it's a part of, so you will not need to enter any code at any time. You'll simply have to pick one of the domains/subdomains you have inside the website hosting account and to determine which folder must be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then enter the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be all set. The protection will be enabled immediately, so anybody who tries to access the recently protected folder will have to type in the right login info. In cases where various people must be able to access the exact same content, you can create a separate username for each of them.
