If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you'll be able to activate password protection for a particular folder - either the primary website folder or another one below it. If this function is activated, a pop-up shall appear each and every time somebody attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected just the domain.com folder. When the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no method of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that no one will be able to access the shielded content. The function can be beneficial in numerous situations - if only a few individuals must be able to see particular files, if you are building a website and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so forth.

When you use any of our cloud website hosting solutions, you shall be able to make password-protected areas without difficulty even if you have no experience with this type of matters.

You will only have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the particular folder which has to be secured (the main one or a subfolder), and then to type in the desired username and password that will be used to access the folder in question later on. Every protected folder shall have padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you will be able to see immediately what content is secured and what is not. If necessary, you could make a number of different sets of login details for precisely the same folder.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Securing any folder with a password will be easy if you host your websites inside a semi-dedicated server account with us. A user-friendly tool, that's built into the Hepsia Control Panel, will permit you to select the particular folder you would like to protect with a couple of clicks and all you'll need to type shall be the username and the password that'll be used to access it subsequently. You will not experience any issues even if you have never had a website hosting account before, due to the fact that you don't need any previous knowledge or programming skills to activate the feature. If you repeat the same simple steps, you'll be able to create different usernames for the exact same password-protected area, so many people shall be able to access a particular folder with their own login details. You shall be able to see the secured folders easily either in precisely the same section of the Control Panel or inside the File Manager section where you'll detect them by their tiny padlock icons.
