If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you are able to switch on password protection for a specific folder - either the main site folder or a different one below it. In case this feature is active, a pop-up will appear each time a person tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have protected only the domain.com folder. In case the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any method of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that nobody shall be able access the shielded content. The feature can be useful in a variety of situations - if only certain people must be able to see specific files, if you are creating a site and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, etc.

Password Protected Directories in Hosting

With the password protection tool supplied with each and every hosting package that we provide, you'll be able to shield any content that you have inside your account with only a few mouse clicks. Since the tool is part of our innovative Hepsia Control Panel, it features exactly the same uncomplicated interface and you will not need any special skills to use it. When you navigate to the Password Protection section, you will need to choose one of the domains or subdomains which you have within the account and then choose whether the protection should be turned on for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then enter the username and the password that you'd like and you shall be set. A small padlock icon within the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the very same way you'll be able to include several usernames and passwords for the same folder if you want several people to have their own login credentials.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall be able to set up password protection for any content you have within your semi-dedicated server account. We have included an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel using which you will be able to activate the feature with a number of clicks and with no difficulties, even if you're not very tech-savvy. You'll only have to choose the hostname (domain or subdomain), the exact folder that needs to be secured (the primary folder or a subfolder) as well as the login name and password. The protection will take effect at once, so if you try to open the password-protected URL within your web browser, you will have to type the newly created login details in order to proceed. You will also 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 everybody. Any password-protected folder shall have a little padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you'll be able to recognize this type of folders easily.
