If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could switch on password protection for a certain folder - either the primary website folder or a different one below it. Whenever this feature is turned on, a pop-up will appear every time anyone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have protected just the domain.com folder. In case 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 no one will be able to access the secured content. The function may be helpful in a number of cases - if only a number of individuals must be able to see certain files, if you are developing a website and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, etc.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting
Creating a password-protected area shall take merely a few mouse clicks and a few seconds when you host your websites within a cloud hosting
account with our company. You shall not need to do anything difficult - you'll need to pick a domain/subdomain, to pick which folder under it should be secured, and then to type the login name and password which will be used to access that folder. If a number of individuals require their own login credentials, there will not be a problem to create a variety of different usernames with access to the very same folder. All secured folders will appear with a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you will always know where this feature is activated. If you would like to deactivate the protection feature for any folder, you can disable it from the same exact section of the CP in which you have enabled it.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server
account with us, you will be able to secure any content which you have uploaded using our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's part of, so you'll not have to enter any code at any time. You'll simply have to choose one of the domains/subdomains that you have inside the website hosting account and to choose which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. After that you can input the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be all set. The protection will be turned on instantly, so anyone who tries to access the recently protected folder shall have to input the right login details. In case various individuals have to be able to access the exact same content, you can create a separate username for each.
