If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could activate password protection for a specific folder - either the main Internet site folder or a different one below it. When this function is turned on, a pop-up shall appear each and every time someone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login info will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured just the domain.com folder. In case the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no way to get around this restriction, so you can rest assured that nobody shall be able access the shielded content. The function may be beneficial in a variety of scenarios - if only a few people must be able to see certain files, if you are building an Internet site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so on.
Password Protected Directories in Web Hosting
When you use any of our web hosting plans, you can set up password-protected areas effortlessly even if you have zero experience with this sort of matters. We have included a very easy-to-use point-and-click tool into the Hepsia CP, offered with all accounts, so you'll be able to protect any folder within a matter of seconds. You will have to select a domain or a subdomain and the particular folder that must be protected (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to enter the username and password which will be used to access the folder in question later on. Each and every secured folder shall have padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you shall be able to see immediately what content is secured and what is not. If needed, you can make several different sets of login details for precisely the same folder.
