If you would like keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can enable password protection for a certain folder - either the main Internet site folder or another one below it. In case this feature is active, a pop-up will 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 info will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured just the domain.com folder. If the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be sure that nobody shall be able access the shielded content. The function could be useful in various situations - if only some people should be able to see particular files, if you are creating a website and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Hosting

With the password protection tool provided with every hosting package which we offer, you shall be able to protect any content which you have within your account with merely a few mouse clicks. As the tool is part of our innovative Hepsia CP, it offers the exact same simple interface and you'll not require any special skills to use it. When you check out the Password Protection section, you will have to pick one of the domains or subdomains that you have inside the account and then choose whether the protection should be turned on for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then type in the username and the password that you'd like and you will be set. A small padlock symbol inside the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the very same way you'll be able to add multiple usernames and passwords for the same folder if you would like several people to have their own login credentials.

It will take a few clicks to turn on the password protection function for any folder you have, in case you use one of our semi-dedicated servers.

It's a part of the Hepsia Control Panel, that you will get to manage your new account and once you log in and check out the Password Protection section, you'll be able to pick the domain or subdomain that should be secured and then the specific folder - either the main folder or any subfolder under it. You shall also see two boxes in which you will have to input the login name and the password that will be necessary to access the folder in question and you shall be ready. By following exactly the same steps, you can set up a variety of login credentials for the very same folder to give several people their own username/password. All secured folders shall have a small padlock sign in the File Manager section.
