If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you'll be able to switch on password protection for a specific folder - either the primary site folder or another one below it. Whenever this function is enabled, a pop-up shall appear each and every time anyone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured only the domain.com folder. When the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no way to get around this restriction, so you can be sure that nobody shall be able access the shielded content. The feature may be helpful in numerous scenarios - if only certain people need to be able to see particular files, if you are developing an Internet site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting
With the password protection tool provided with each cloud hosting package deal which we offer, you'll be able to secure any content that you have inside your account with only a few mouse clicks. Due to the fact that the tool is part of our ground breaking Hepsia Control Panel, it provides exactly the same uncomplicated interface and you shall not require any special skills to use it. Once you go to the Password Protection section, you'll have to choose one of the domains or subdomains you have in the account and then choose whether the protection should be active for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then type in the username and the password that you'd like and you'll be set. A small padlock symbol in the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the same exact way you'll be able to include many usernames and passwords for the same folder if you want several people to have their own login credentials.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll be able to shield any content you have uploaded using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's a part of, so you'll not need to type in any code at any time. You will simply need to choose one of the domains/subdomains which you have inside the website hosting account and to pick which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. After that you can enter the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be all set. The protection shall be switched on instantly, so anybody who tries to access the newly secured folder will have to input the right login information. If a number of individuals have to be able to access the exact same content, you could make a separate username for each of them.
