If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you can switch on password protection for a particular folder - either the main website folder or a different one below it. In case this feature is active, a pop-up will appear anytime anyone tries 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 the domain.com folder. When the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no method of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The function may be helpful in a number of cases - if only a few people must be able to see particular files, if you work on a site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, etc.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

With the password protection tool that is included with every cloud hosting package which we offer, you shall be able to protect any content that you have inside your account with simply a few mouse clicks. Since the tool is an element of our ground breaking Hepsia CP, it provides exactly the same uncomplicated interface and you shall not need any special skills to use it. When you navigate to the Password Protection section, you will have to choose one of the domains or subdomains that you have within the account and then choose if the protection should be activated for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password you want and you shall be ready. A tiny padlock icon inside the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the same exact way you shall be able to include multiple usernames and passwords for the same folder if you would like several people to have their own login credentials.

Securing any folder with a password will be very easy if you host your sites within a semi-dedicated server account with us.

You'll not experience any troubles even if you have not had a website hosting account before, since you don't need any previous knowledge or computer programming skills to activate the function. If you repeat the same basic steps, you will be able to set up many usernames for the very same password-protected area, so a number of people will be able to access a given folder with their own login details. You will be able to see the secured folders very easily either in exactly the same section of the CP or in the File Manager section where you'll identify them by their compact padlock icons.
