If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to activate password protection for a particular folder - either the primary website folder or a different one below it. Whenever this function is enabled, a pop-up shall appear every time somebody attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have protected the domain.com folder. When the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no way 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 useful in various situations - if only certain individuals need to be able to see particular files, if you work on a website and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting

With the password protection tool that comes with each and every shared hosting plan that we offer, you shall be able to secure any content which you have within your account with only a few mouse clicks. As the tool is an element of our innovative Hepsia CP, it features the same uncomplicated interface and you shall not require any special skills to use it. As soon as you navigate to the Password Protection section, you'll have to choose one of the domains or subdomains you have inside the account and then decide whether 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 shall be ready. A little padlock symbol inside the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the very same way you shall be able to add multiple usernames and passwords for the same folder if you'd like several people to have their own login credentials.
