If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you can activate password protection for a certain folder - either the main website folder or another one below it. Whenever this option is activated, a pop-up shall appear 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 will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured just the domain.com folder. In case the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any method of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that no one shall be able access the secured content. The function can be helpful in a variety of situations - if only some people should be able to see certain files, if you are developing a website and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, and so on.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

All of our cloud hosting plans include an exceptionally handy tool which will allow you to protect any folder within your account from unauthorized access with simply 2 mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will simply have to visit 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 input the username and the password which must be used to access the content in question. The function will be active immediately, so if you attempt to open the folder/website, you'll be prompted to input the login info. You may set up or remove many usernames for the exact same folder, when necessary. When you check out the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be marked with a little padlock icon.
