Password Protected Directories
What are password-protected directories? What do they mean for your website?
If you would like keep some content hidden from the public eye, you can switch on password protection for a certain folder - either the main Internet site folder or another one below it. If this option is turned on, a pop-up shall appear every time somebody tries 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 when you have protected only the domain.com folder. In case the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no way to get around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one will be able to access the secured content. The feature could be beneficial in various situations - if only a number of people should be able to see particular files, if you work on a site and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, and so on.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting
With the password protection tool that comes with every shared hosting
package that we offer, you will be able to secure any content which you have within your account with simply a few clicks. Due to the fact that the tool is a component of our ground breaking Hepsia Control Panel, it has exactly the same uncomplicated interface and you will not require any special skills to use it. When you navigate to the Password Protection section, you will need to choose one of the domains or subdomains you have inside the account and then choose if the protection should be turned on for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then type in the username and the password that you'd like and you shall be all set to go. A tiny padlock symbol in the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the same way you shall be able to add numerous 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
You will be able to set up password protection for any content you have within your semi-dedicated server
account. We have included an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel where you will be able to activate the feature with a few mouse clicks and with no troubles, even if you are not really tech-savvy. You'll simply have to pick the hostname (domain or subdomain), the exact folder that must be secured (the primary folder or a subfolder) plus the login name and password. The protection shall take effect right away, so if you attempt to open the password-protected URL in your browser, you will have to type in the newly created login details in order to proceed. Additionally, you'll be able to give different usernames for the same folder to a number of individuals, so you will not need to share the same login details with everybody. Each password-protected folder shall have a small padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you'll be able to recognize this type of folders with ease.
