If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could switch on password protection for a specific folder - either the primary website folder or another one below it. If this feature is enabled, a pop-up shall appear every time somebody tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected only the domain.com folder. When the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any way to get around this restriction, so you can rest assured that nobody shall be able access the secured content. The function could be beneficial in a variety of situations - if only certain individuals need to be able to see specific files, if you are developing a site and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, etc.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting
Creating a password-protected area shall take no more than a few mouse clicks and a few seconds when you host your websites inside a cloud hosting
account with our company. You shall not have to do anything complex - you'll have to select a domain/subdomain, to pick which folder under it should be secured, and then to type the login name and password which will be used to access that folder. In case a number of individuals require their own login details, there shall not be a problem to set up numerous different usernames with access to the same exact folder. All protected folders will appear with a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you'll always know where this feature is enabled. If you wish to disable the security feature 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 Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server
account with our company, you will be able to secure any content that you've uploaded via our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it's part of, so you shall not have to enter any code at any time. You'll only have to select one of the domains/subdomains that you have in the website hosting account and to choose which folder must be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can enter the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be all set. The protection will be enabled straightaway, so anyone who tries to access the newly protected folder will have to input the right login details. In case several people must be able to access exactly the same content, you could set up a separate username for each.
