If you wish to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you could switch on password protection for a specific folder - either the primary Internet site folder or another one below it. Whenever this option is active, a pop-up will appear every time anyone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured the domain.com folder. When the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody will be able to access the protected content. The option may be helpful in a variety of situations - if only certain people need to be able to see particular files, if you work on an Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, and so forth.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Website Hosting
With the password protection tool provided with each and every cloud website hosting plan which we offer, you'll be able to shield any content that you have within your account with just a few clicks. Due to the fact that the tool is a component of our revolutionary Hepsia CP, it has the exact same simple interface and you shall not need any special skills to use it. Once you go to the Password Protection section, you will have to select one of the domains or subdomains which you have inside the account and then decide whether the protection should be active for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password that you would like and you shall be ready. A small padlock icon inside the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the very same way you shall be able to add many usernames and passwords for the same folder if you would like several people to have their own login credentials.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to protect any content which you have uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is part of, so you will not have to enter any code at any time. You will only need to choose one of the domains/subdomains you have inside the website hosting account and to pick which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You can then enter the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be good to go. The protection shall be switched on right away, so anyone that attempts to access the freshly secured folder shall have to input the correct login details. In cases where several individuals must be able to open the same content, you could make a separate username for each.
