If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you are able to activate password protection for a certain folder - either the main website folder or a different one below it. If this feature is enabled, a pop-up shall appear each and every time a person attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured just the domain.com folder. In case the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no method of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that no one will be able to access the shielded content. The option can be beneficial in numerous scenarios - if only certain people must be able to see specific files, if you are building an Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, and so on.

Password Protected Directories in Website Hosting

All our website hosting plans feature an incredibly useful tool that'll allow you to protect any folder within your account from unauthorized access with only two clicks. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll simply have to navigate to the Password Protection section, to choose 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 input the username and the password which should be used in order to access the content in question. The function shall be active at once, so if you attempt to open the folder/website, you will be prompted to enter the login credentials. You can set up or remove multiple usernames for the same folder, if needed. If you navigate to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be shown with a compact padlock icon.

By following precisely the same steps, you are able to create a number of login credentials for the same folder to give several people their own username/password. All protected folders shall feature a small padlock sign in the File Manager section.
