If you'd like to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you are able to enable password protection for a specific folder - either the main site folder or a different one below it. If this feature is activated, a pop-up shall appear each time anyone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured just the domain.com folder. If the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no method of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that nobody will be able to access the shielded content. The option may be beneficial in a variety of cases - if only a number of people should be able to see certain files, if you work on a website and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, and so on.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Website Hosting

If you use any of our shared website hosting solutions, you can make password-protected areas effortlessly even if you don't have any experience with this sort of matters. We have integrated a really easy-to-use point-and-click tool into the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all accounts, so you shall be able to secure any folder within just seconds. You will have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder that should be protected (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to input the desired username and password which will be used to access the folder in question later on. Each protected folder will have a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you shall be able to see immediately what content is secured and what's not. If required, you may create a number of sets of login details for exactly the same folder.
