If you'd like to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could activate password protection for a particular folder - either the main website folder or a different one below it. If this option is turned on, a pop-up shall appear each and every time anyone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have protected just the domain.com folder. In case the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no way to get around this restriction, so you can be sure that no one shall be able access the shielded content. The feature may be useful in a variety of situations - if only some people should be able to see particular files, if you are developing an Internet site and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so on.

Password Protected Directories in Web Hosting

With the password protection tool that is included with each web hosting package which we offer, you'll be able to shield any content which you have inside your account with only a few mouse clicks. Due to the fact that the tool is a component of our ground breaking Hepsia Control Panel, 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'll need to select one of the domains or subdomains that you have within the account and then decide if the protection should be switched on for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password that you'd like and you will be set. A little padlock icon within the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the same way you'll be able to include a number of usernames and passwords for the same folder if you would like several people to have their own login credentials.
