Password Protected Directories
Discover more about password-protected directories and just what they bring to your web site.
If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you are able to activate password protection for a specific folder - either the main website folder or a different one below it. In case this option is active, a pop-up will appear each 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 required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured the domain.com folder. If the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be sure that no one shall be able access the protected content. The option can be helpful in numerous situations - if only certain individuals must be able to see particular files, if you are building a website and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, and so forth.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Web Hosting
All our cloud web hosting feature a very handy tool which will allow you to secure any folder within your account from unauthorized access with simply 2 mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will only have to go to the Password Protection section, to choose the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that needs to be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type in the username and the password that should be used so as to access the content in question. The function will be activated at once, so in case you make an effort to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to input the login info. You could create or remove multiple usernames for the very same folder, when necessary. If you go to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be shown with a compact padlock icon.
