If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you'll be able to switch on password protection for a certain folder - either the primary Internet site folder or a different one below it. When this function is active, a pop-up shall appear anytime somebody attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected only the domain.com folder. When the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that nobody shall be able access the protected content. The function may be helpful in numerous scenarios - if only a few people should be able to see certain files, if you are creating an Internet site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

All our cloud hosting include a really useful tool that will permit you to protect any folder inside your account from unauthorized access with simply 2 clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia website hosting CP, you will simply have to navigate to the Password Protection section, to select the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that should be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to enter the username and the password that must be used to access the content in question. The function will be active immediately, so if you make an effort to open the folder/website, you'll be prompted to type in the login information. You can create or remove a number of usernames for the same folder, if needed. When you check out the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be indicated by a little padlock icon.

A user-friendly tool, that's integrated into the Hepsia CP, will permit you to choose the specific folder that you want to secure with a couple of clicks and all you will have to type in shall be the username and the password which will be used to access it afterwards. You'll not encounter any issues even if you haven't had a website hosting account before, since you do not need any previous knowledge or programming skills to switch on the feature. If you repeat the same basic steps, you shall be able to create numerous usernames for the exact same password-protected area, so a number of people shall be able to access a given folder with their own login credentials. You will be able to see the secured folders easily either in the same section of the CP or within the File Manager section where you'll detect them by their little padlock icons.
