If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could activate password protection for a specific folder - either the main website folder or another one below it. In case this option is activated, a pop-up shall appear anytime 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 required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured only the domain.com folder. If the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one will be able to access the shielded content. The function may be helpful in various scenarios - if only a few people should be able to see particular files, if you are creating an Internet site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so on.
Password Protected Directories in Website Hosting
All our website hosting feature a really handy tool which will allow you to shield any folder in your account from unauthorized access with just 2 clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll simply have to visit the Password Protection section, to select the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which should be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to input the username and the password which have to be used so as to access the content in question. The feature shall be active straightaway, so in case you make an effort to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to enter the login details. You may set up or remove numerous usernames for the very same folder, when necessary. When you navigate to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be shown with a compact padlock icon.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to secure any content which you have uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it is part of, so you'll not have to write any code at any time. You'll only have to select one of the domains/subdomains which you have in the hosting account and to choose which folder must be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You can then type the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be ready. The protection will be turned on instantly, so anyone who attempts to access the newly secured folder shall have to enter the accurate login info. When a number of people must be able to open exactly the same content, you can create a separate username for each of them.
