If you wish to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to activate password protection for a particular folder - either the primary Internet site folder or another one below it. In case this feature 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 will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected the domain.com folder. When the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no way to get around this restriction, so you can be positive that nobody shall be able access the protected content. The function can be beneficial in numerous scenarios - if only a number of individuals should be able to see specific files, if you are creating a website and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Web Hosting

All our shared web hosting include an incredibly convenient tool that will allow you to protect any folder in your account from unauthorized access with just 2 clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia web hosting CP, you'll only 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 type the username and the password that have to be used so as to access the content in question. The feature will be activated at once, so in case you try to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to type in the login info. You could create or remove multiple usernames for the same folder, if necessary. When you navigate to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be indicated by a little padlock icon.
