In case this feature is active, a pop-up shall appear anytime a person tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured the domain.com folder. If the details 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 function can be beneficial in numerous cases - if only a few people should be able to see certain files, if you are building a website and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so on.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting

If you use any of our shared hosting products, you'll be able to make password-protected areas without difficulty even if you have zero experience with this sort of matters. We have integrated an incredibly easy-to-use point-and-click tool in the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts, so you will be able to shield any folder within merely seconds. You will have to select a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder which has to be secured (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to type the preferred username and password that'll be used to access the folder in question later on. Any protected folder shall have padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you will be able to see instantly what content is protected and what is not. When necessary, you can create a number of different sets of login details for exactly the same folder.

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll be able to shield any content you have uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's a part of, so you shall not need to type in any code at any time. You'll only have to select one of the domains/subdomains that you have in 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 type the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be good to go. The protection will be turned on right away, so anybody who tries to access the recently secured folder will have to input the correct login info. If several individuals have to be able to open exactly the same content, you could set up a separate username for each.
