If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could enable password protection for a certain folder - either the main site folder or any other one below it. Whenever this function is activated, a pop-up shall appear each time anyone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured just the domain.com folder. In case the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The function could be beneficial in various scenarios - if only some people need to be able to see certain files, if you work on a site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting

When you use any of our shared hosting plans, you'll be able to set up password-protected areas effortlessly even if you don't have any experience with such matters. We have built in an extremely easy-to-use point-and-click tool within the Hepsia CP, which comes with all accounts, so you'll be able to shield any folder within a matter of seconds. You'll only have to choose a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder which has to be protected (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to input the desired username and password that'll be used to access the folder in question in the future. Every protected folder shall have padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you shall be able to see immediately what content is secured and what is not. When necessary, you may create a number of sets of login credentials for exactly the same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll be able to secure any content which you have uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it's part of, so you will not need to write any code at any time. You'll simply have to choose one of the domains/subdomains that you have in the website hosting account and to choose which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then type the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be ready. The protection shall be switched on immediately, so anyone that attempts to access the recently secured folder will have to type in the correct login information. If a number of individuals must be able to open exactly the same content, you could set up a separate username for each.
