If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can switch on password protection for a specific folder - either the main website folder or a different one below it. In case this option is activated, a pop-up shall appear each time a person 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 when you have protected just the domain.com folder. When the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no way to get around this restriction, so you can be sure that nobody will be able to access the protected content. The option could be helpful in a variety of cases - if only certain individuals should 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 on.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting
Setting up a password-protected area will take only a couple of mouse clicks and a few seconds when you host your Internet sites inside a cloud hosting account with our company. You shall not need to do anything difficult - you'll have to choose a domain/subdomain, to choose which folder under it has to be protected, and then to input the login name and password which will be used to access that folder. When a number of people require their own login details, there will not be a problem to set up numerous different usernames with access to the same folder. All secured folders will appear with a padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you will always know where this option is active. If you'd like to deactivate the security function for any folder, you can disable it from the same section of the CP where you have enabled it.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to shield any content that you have uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is a part of, so you'll not need to write any code at any time. You'll only have to choose one of the domains/subdomains that you have in the web hosting account and to pick which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then enter the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be all set. The protection will be enabled right away, so anybody who tries to access the recently secured folder shall have to type in the accurate login info. When various people must be able to open precisely the same content, you could make a separate username for each of them.
