If you'd like to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you can switch on password protection for a given folder - either the main site folder or any other one below it. In case this feature is turned on, a pop-up shall appear each and every time somebody attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured just the domain.com folder. When the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any way to get around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one will be able to access the secured content. The feature can be beneficial in numerous situations - if only certain individuals need to be able to see specific files, if you are creating a website and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, etc.

Password Protected Directories in Website Hosting

When you use any of our website hosting solutions, you'll be able to create password-protected areas without difficulty even if you don't have any experience with such matters. We've incorporated an extremely easy-to-use point-and-click tool within the Hepsia CP, provided with all accounts, so you shall be able to secure any folder within just seconds. You'll simply have to choose a domain or a subdomain and the particular folder which should be secured (the main one or a subfolder), and then to type the username and password that'll be used to access the folder in question in the future. Any protected folder will have a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you will be able to see instantly what content is secured and what is not. If needed, you may create several different sets of login details for the same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to set up password protection for any content you have inside your semi-dedicated server account. We've integrated an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel using which you will be able to enable the feature with several clicks and with no complications, even if you are not very tech-savvy. You will simply have to choose the hostname (domain or subdomain), the particular folder which has to be secured (the primary folder or a subfolder) as well as the login name and password. The protection will take effect immediately, so if you make an attempt to open the password-protected URL within your web browser, you will have to type the newly created login details in order to proceed. Additionally, you will be able to give different usernames for the exact same folder to a number of individuals, so you'll not have to share the same login credentials with anyone. Any password-protected folder shall have a compact padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you will be able to recognize this kind of folders in no time.
