Password Protected Directories
What are password-protected directories? What do they mean for your website?
If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could switch on password protection for a given folder - either the primary website folder or another one below it. If this function is enabled, a pop-up shall appear each and every time someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured only the domain.com folder. When the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any way to get around this restriction, so you can rest assured that no one shall be able access the protected content. The feature could be useful in numerous scenarios - if only some individuals must be able to see certain files, if you are creating a site and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, etc.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Website Hosting
With the password protection tool provided with each shared website hosting
package which we offer, you shall be able to shield any content which you have inside your account with simply a few mouse clicks. Due to the fact that the tool is an element of our revolutionary Hepsia Control Panel, it offers the exact same simple interface and you will not need any special skills to use it. Once you go to the Password Protection section, you'll need to choose one of the domains or subdomains you have within the account and then choose if the protection should be active for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password that you want and you will be all set to go. A small padlock icon inside the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the exact same way you shall be able to include several usernames and passwords for the same folder if you would like several people to have their own login credentials.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server
account with our company, you shall be able to protect any content that you've uploaded via our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's a part of, so you will not need to type in any code at any time. You will simply need to select one of the domains/subdomains you have inside the web hosting account and to select which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then type in the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be ready. The protection will be turned on at once, so anybody who tries to access the freshly secured folder will have to input the correct login details. In case various people have to be able to access exactly the same content, you could make a separate username for each.
