If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you'll be able to activate password protection for a given folder - either the main site folder or a different one below it. If this function is turned on, a pop-up shall appear every time a person attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have protected just the domain.com folder. When the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any way of getting around this restriction, so you can be sure that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The function could be beneficial in a number of situations - if only a few individuals must be able to see certain files, if you are creating an Internet site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so on.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting
All of our Linux cloud service include a very handy tool which will enable you to secure any folder inside your account from unauthorized access with only two clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia website hosting CP, you'll just have to go to the Password Protection section, to choose the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that needs to be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to input the username and the password which have to be used to access the content in question. The function will be active straightaway, so in case you attempt to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to type in the login details. You could set up or remove numerous usernames for the same folder, when necessary. If you check out the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be shown with a small padlock icon.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
Protecting any folder with a password shall be easy if you host your Internet sites within a semi-dedicated server account with our company. A user-friendly tool, that's incorporated into the Hepsia Control Panel, will enable you to choose the exact folder you'd like to protect with a couple of clicks and all you will have to type will be the username and the password which will be used to access it later. You won't encounter any complications even if you have never had a hosting account before, due to the fact that you do not need any previous knowledge or computer programming skills to enable the feature. If you repeat the same simple steps, you shall be able to set up numerous usernames for the exact same password-protected area, so lots of people shall be able to access a particular folder with their own login credentials. You'll be able to see the protected folders conveniently either in the same section of the Control Panel or in the File Manager section where you'll detect them by their compact padlock icons.
