If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could enable password protection for a specific folder - either the primary Internet site folder or any other one below it. If this option is enabled, a pop-up shall appear every time somebody tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login info will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured only the domain.com folder. When the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any way of getting around this restriction, so you can be sure that no one shall be able access the secured content. The function may be useful in a number of scenarios - if only certain individuals must be able to see specific files, if you are creating a website and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

It will require a few clicks to activate the password protection feature for any folder which you have, in case you use one of our semi-dedicated plans. We have an incredibly practical tool, that offers a user-friendly point-and-click interface and which can be used by people without any experience. It is an element of the Hepsia Control Panel, which you will get to manage your new account as soon as you log in and visit the Password Protection section, you'll be able to pick the domain or subdomain that needs to be secured and then the particular folder - either the primary folder or any subfolder under it. You shall also see two boxes in which you will have to type in the login name and the password that will be needed to access the folder in question and you will be ready. By following exactly the same steps, you are able to set up several different login credentials for the same folder to give several people their own username/password. All protected folders shall have a small padlock sign in the File Manager section.
