If you wish to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can activate password protection for a given folder - either the primary site folder or a different one below it. When this function is turned on, a pop-up will appear anytime someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login info will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected only the domain.com folder. When the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody will be able to access the protected content. The function could be useful in various scenarios - if only a few people need to be able to see certain files, if you work on a site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Website Hosting

With the password protection tool provided with every shared website hosting package that we offer, you shall be able to secure any content which you have within your account with merely a few mouse clicks. Because the tool is a component of our ground breaking Hepsia Control Panel, it provides the exact same uncomplicated interface and you'll not require any special skills to use it. When you navigate to the Password Protection section, you will have to select one of the domains or subdomains you have in the account and then choose whether the protection should be active for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then type in the username and the password that you want and you will be set. A little padlock symbol inside the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the very same way you will be able to include many usernames and passwords for the same folder if you want several people to have their own login credentials.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to set up password protection for any content which you have inside your semi-dedicated server account. We've added an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel through which you shall be able to switch on the function with several mouse clicks and without any problems, even if you are not very tech-savvy. You will only need to select the hostname (domain or subdomain), the exact folder which should be protected (the primary folder or a subfolder) and the login name and password. The protection will take effect instantly, so if you attempt to open the password-protected URL in your web browser, you'll have to input the newly created login credentials in order to proceed. Additionally, you will be able to give different usernames for the very same folder to a number of people, so you'll not need to share the same login details with everyone. Any password-protected folder shall have a tiny padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you will be able to recognize such folders in no time.
