If you would like keep some content hidden from the public eye, you'll be able to switch on password protection for a certain folder - either the primary Internet site folder or any other one below it. In case this feature is active, a pop-up will appear anytime somebody tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected only the domain.com folder. When the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any method of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one will be able to access the secured content. The feature may be beneficial in a variety of scenarios - if only a number of people should be able to see particular files, if you are building a website and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

Protecting any folder with a password will be very simple if you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account with us. A user-friendly tool, that's built into the Hepsia CP, will enable you to pick the particular folder that you want to protect with a couple of clicks and all you will need to input will be the username and the password that'll be used to access it later on. You will not experience any issues even if you haven't had a website hosting account before, since you don't need any previous knowledge or computer programming skills to enable the function. If you repeat the same very simple steps, you'll be able to set up various usernames for the very same password-protected area, so a number of people will be able to access a certain folder with their own login details. You will be able to see the secured folders very easily either in exactly the same section of the CP or within the File Manager section where you'll identify them by their tiny padlock icons.
