If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you'll be able to activate password protection for a given folder - either the primary site folder or another one below it. Whenever this function is turned on, a pop-up shall appear every time someone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login details will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured just the domain.com folder. In case the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that nobody will be able to access the protected content. The feature may be helpful in a variety of cases - if only a few individuals must be able to see certain files, if you are developing a website and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Web Hosting

Setting up a password-protected area will take only a couple of mouse clicks and a few seconds if you host your websites in a shared web hosting account with our company. You shall not have to do anything challenging - you'll have to pick a domain/subdomain, to choose which folder under it must be protected, and then to input the login name and password that will be used to access that folder. If a number of individuals need their own login details, there won't be a problem to set up several different usernames with access to the same exact folder. All secured folders will appear with a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you'll always know where this option is enabled. If you would like to disable the protection feature for any folder, you can disable it from the exact same section of the CP where you have enabled it.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll be able to secure any content that you have uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it is part of, so you shall not have to write any code at any time. You'll simply need to choose one of the domains/subdomains you have in the hosting account and to choose which folder should be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then type in the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be ready. The protection shall be switched on instantly, so anyone that tries to access the newly secured folder shall have to enter the right login details. In case a number of people should be able to access exactly the same content, you could make a separate username for each.
