If you would like keep some content hidden from the public eye, you'll be able to activate password protection for a specific folder - either the main site folder or another one below it. Whenever this option is enabled, a pop-up shall appear each time a person attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have protected the domain.com folder. If the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any method of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that no one will be able to access the shielded content. The function may be helpful in a number of scenarios - if only a number of people need to be able to see particular files, if you are creating a website and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so on.

Password Protected Directories in Web Hosting

When you use any of our web hosting plans, you'll be able to create password-protected areas with ease even if you have zero experience with this type of matters. We have built in a very easy-to-use point-and-click tool into the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all accounts, so you'll be able to protect any folder within a matter of seconds. You'll only have to choose a domain or a subdomain and the exact folder that should be protected (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to input the desired username and password that will be used to access the folder in question at some point. Each secured folder will have a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see at a glance what content is secured and what is not. If necessary, you could make a number of different sets of login credentials for the exact same folder.
