If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you can enable password protection for a given folder - either the primary site folder or another one below it. If this option is turned on, a pop-up shall appear each time someone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected only the domain.com folder. If the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no way to get around this restriction, so you can be positive that nobody shall be able access the shielded content. The feature can be beneficial in a variety of scenarios - if only a number of people should be able to see certain files, if you are creating an Internet site and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so on.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting

All our Linux shared hosting feature a really convenient tool that'll enable you to protect any folder within your account from unauthorized access with just two clicks. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will just have to navigate to the Password Protection section, to pick the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which needs to be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type in the username and the password that have to be used to access the content in question. The function shall be turned on right away, so if you attempt to open the folder/website, you'll be prompted to enter the login information. You may create or remove a number of usernames for the same folder, if needed. When you go to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be shown with a compact padlock icon.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll be able to protect any content which you have uploaded using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it's part of, so you'll not need to enter any code at any time. You will only need to pick one of the domains/subdomains you have inside the hosting account and to determine which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. After that 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 activated straightaway, so anyone that tries to access the recently secured folder shall have to enter the right login info. In cases where several people have to be able to open exactly the same content, you can create a separate username for each.
