Password Protected Directories
See how to create a protected and user-only area in your web site with password-protected directories.
If you'd like to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you'll be able to activate password protection for a specific folder - either the primary website folder or a different one below it. If this function is active, a pop-up shall appear every time somebody attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured just the domain.com folder. In case the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no method of getting around this restriction, so you can be sure that no one will be able to access the shielded content. The function may be helpful in numerous cases - if only a number of individuals must be able to see certain files, if you work on an Internet site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting
All our shared hosting plans
feature an incredibly convenient tool which will permit you to protect any folder within your account from unauthorized access with only 2 mouse clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia hosting CP, you will just have to navigate to the Password Protection section, to select the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that needs to be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type the username and the password that must be used to access the content in question. The feature will be active immediately, so in case you attempt to open the folder/website, you'll be prompted to enter the login information. You can set up or remove many usernames for the exact same folder, if needed. When you check out the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be indicated by a small padlock icon.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall be able to set up password protection for any content you have in your semi-dedicated server
account. We have included an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel through which you shall be able to switch on the function with a number of mouse clicks and without any difficulties, even if you're not very tech-savvy. You will only need to pick the hostname (domain or subdomain), the exact folder that needs to be secured (the main folder or a subfolder) and 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 browser, you will have to type the newly created login credentials before you proceed. You'll also be able to give different usernames for the same folder to a number of individuals, so you will not need to share the same login credentials with anybody. Each password-protected folder shall have a small padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you will be able to recognize such folders with ease.
