If you would like keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to activate password protection for a certain folder - either the primary website folder or a different one below it. In case this function is activated, a pop-up shall appear anytime somebody attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured the domain.com folder. If the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no way to get around this restriction, so you can rest assured that no one will be able to access the protected content. The function may be beneficial in a number of scenarios - if only certain people should be able to see particular files, if you are creating an Internet site and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Website Hosting

All of our cloud website hosting plans include a really convenient tool which will allow you to shield any folder in your account from unauthorized access with just two clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will only have to visit the Password Protection section, to choose the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that needs to be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to enter the username and the password that must be used in order to access the content in question. The feature shall be activated at once, so if you make an effort to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to input the login info. You may create or remove numerous usernames for the very same folder, if necessary. When you check out the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be marked with a little padlock icon.
