If you'd like to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you could enable password protection for a specific folder - either the primary Internet site folder or another one below it. When this feature is turned on, a pop-up shall appear anytime somebody attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected just the domain.com folder. In case the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no way to get around this restriction, so you can be sure that no one will be able to access the protected content. The function could be useful in numerous scenarios - if only some individuals should be able to see specific files, if you are building a site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so on.

Password Protected Directories in Hosting

With the password protection tool that is included with each hosting package deal which we provide, you shall be able to protect any content that you have within your account with just a few mouse clicks. Because the tool is a component of our revolutionary Hepsia Control Panel, it provides the exact same simple interface and you will not need any special skills to use it. Once you check out the Password Protection section, you will need to pick one of the domains or subdomains that you have inside the account and then choose whether the protection should be activated for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password that you'd like and you shall be ready. A tiny padlock symbol within the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the same exact way you will be able to include a number of usernames and passwords for the same folder if you want several people to have their own login credentials.
