Password Protected Directories
Learn how to create a secure and user-only area in your website with password-protected directories.
If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you can switch on password protection for a particular folder - either the primary Internet site folder or any other one below it. Whenever this function is enabled, a pop-up shall appear each and every time a person tries 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 protected the domain.com folder. If 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 sure that no one will be able to access the secured content. The option can be beneficial in numerous scenarios - if only certain individuals should be able to see certain files, if you are developing an Internet site and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, and so on.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting
With the password protection tool supplied with each and every shared hosting
plan which we offer, you'll be able to secure any content which you have inside your account with only a few mouse clicks. Because the tool is an element of our revolutionary Hepsia CP, it has the same simple interface and you'll not need any special skills to use it. Once you check out the Password Protection section, you will have to select one of the domains or subdomains which you have within the account and then choose if the protection should be activated for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password that you want and you'll be ready. A little padlock icon in the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the exact same way you will be able to add several usernames and passwords for the same folder if you would like several people to have their own login credentials.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server
account with our company, you'll be able to secure any content that you've uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it is part of, so you shall not need to type in any code at any time. You'll only have to choose one of the domains/subdomains which you have in the web hosting account and to determine which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then enter the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be good to go. The protection shall be activated straightaway, so anybody who attempts to access the recently secured folder shall have to type in the accurate login details. If various people should be able to open exactly the same content, you could set up a separate username for each.
