If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you'll be able to activate password protection for a particular folder - either the primary site folder or another one below it. When this function is enabled, a pop-up will 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 when you have secured only the domain.com folder. When the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no way to get around this restriction, so you can be positive that nobody shall be able access the shielded content. The option can be beneficial in numerous situations - if only a number of people must be able to see certain files, if you are creating a website and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Website Hosting

All our Linux cloud website hosting include an incredibly convenient tool which will allow you to protect any folder inside your account from unauthorized access with just two mouse clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will only have to visit the Password Protection section, to select 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 input the username and the password which have to be used so as to access the content in question. The feature shall be turned on straightaway, so if you try to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to enter the login info. You may create or remove a number of usernames for the exact same folder, if required. If you check out the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be marked with a small padlock icon.
