If you would like keep some content hidden from the public eye, you are able to enable password protection for a given folder - either the main Internet site folder or a different one below it. In case this feature is active, a pop-up will appear each time anyone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured just the domain.com folder. When 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 certain that no one will be able to access the secured content. The function may be beneficial in various scenarios - if only a few people should be able to see certain files, if you are developing a website and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Web Hosting

When you use any of our web hosting products, you shall be able to set up password-protected areas without difficulty even if you have no experience with such matters. We've incorporated an extremely easy-to-use point-and-click tool in the Hepsia CP, which comes with all accounts, so you shall be able to protect any folder within merely seconds. You will simply have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder that has to be secured (the main one or a subfolder), and then to input the desired username and password that will be used to access the folder in question later on. Every secured folder will have a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see immediately what content is secured and what's not. If needed, you may create a number of different sets of login credentials for the same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to secure any content which you have uploaded using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's a part of, so you'll not have to input any code at any time. You'll simply have to select one of the domains/subdomains you have inside the web hosting account and to select which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can input the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be good to go. The protection shall be enabled at once, so anyone who tries to access the recently protected folder will have to type in the right login details. In cases where several people have to be able to open precisely the same content, you can create a separate username for each of them.
