Password Protected Directories
See how to make a protected and user-only area in your website with password-protected directories.
If you'd like to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to switch on password protection for a particular folder - either the main website folder or another one below it. If this function is turned on, a pop-up shall appear each time someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if 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 rest assured that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The feature can be useful in a variety of scenarios - if only a number of individuals need to be able to see particular files, if you are building an Internet site and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, etc.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting
With the password protection tool that comes with each cloud hosting
plan that we offer, you'll be able to shield any content that you have inside your account with simply a few mouse clicks. Because the tool is an element of our revolutionary Hepsia CP, it has the same uncomplicated interface and you shall not require any special skills to use it. When you check out the Password Protection section, you'll have to pick one of the domains or subdomains that you have in the account and then choose if the protection should be switched on for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then enter the username and the password that you'd like and you'll be ready. A small padlock icon within the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the same exact way you'll be able to include multiple 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'll 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 shall be able to switch on the feature with a number of clicks and with no complications, even if you're not very tech-savvy. You'll only have to select the hostname (domain or subdomain), the exact folder which should be protected (the main folder or a subfolder) plus the login name and password. The protection shall take effect at once, so if you make an effort to open the password-protected URL within your browser, you will have to enter the newly created login details before you proceed. You'll also be able to give different usernames for the very same folder to a number of individuals, so you will not need to share the same login credentials with everyone. Any password-protected folder shall have a little padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you will be able to recognize this kind of folders easily.
