If you would like keep some content concealed from the public eye, you could enable password protection for a specific folder - either the main Internet site folder or another one below it. When this feature is enabled, a pop-up shall appear each and every time a person attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected only the domain.com folder. If the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any way to get around this restriction, so you can be sure that nobody shall be able access the shielded content. The function could be useful in a variety of situations - if only a number of people must be able to see particular files, if you are developing a website and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, and so on.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting
All our cloud packages feature a really handy tool that'll allow you to secure any folder inside your account from unauthorized access with just two clicks. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia website hosting CP, you'll just have to go to the Password Protection section, to choose the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which has to be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type in the username and the password that should be used to access the content in question. The function will be activated at once, so in case you attempt to open the folder/website, you will be prompted to enter the login details. You could set up or remove a number of usernames for the exact same folder, if required. When you check out the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be marked with a small padlock icon.
