If you'd like to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could activate password protection for a given folder - either the primary website folder or any other one below it. In case this option is active, a pop-up will 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 info will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured just the domain.com folder. If the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no way of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that no one shall be able access the shielded content. The feature could be beneficial in various scenarios - if only a few individuals need to be able to see particular files, if you are creating an Internet site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so on.
Password Protected Directories in Hosting
All of our hosting
include a very convenient tool that'll enable you to shield any folder inside your account from unauthorized access with simply two clicks. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia hosting CP, you will only have to navigate to the Password Protection section, to select the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which has to be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type in the username and the password which must be used in order to access the content in question. The function will be activated immediately, so if you make an effort to open the folder/website, you will be prompted to enter the login information. You may create or remove a number of usernames for the exact same folder, if necessary. If you navigate to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be shown with a small padlock icon.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server
account with us, you'll be able to secure any content that you have uploaded using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it's a part of, so you'll not need to write any code at any time. You'll only need to pick one of the domains/subdomains you have inside the hosting account and to pick which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can type the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be good to go. The protection shall be turned on straightaway, so anybody who attempts to access the newly secured folder will have to input the correct login information. If a number of individuals have to be able to open the same content, you could make a separate username for each one.
