If you'd like to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to switch on password protection for a particular folder - either the main site folder or a different one below it. In case this feature is active, a pop-up will 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 if you have secured just the domain.com folder. If the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any way to get around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody shall be able access the secured content. The function can be beneficial in various cases - if only a number of individuals should be able to see particular files, if you are developing a site and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, and so forth.
Password Protected Directories in Website Hosting
When you use any of our website hosting products, you'll be able to make password-protected areas with ease even if you have no experience with this sort of matters. We've included an extremely easy-to-use point-and-click tool into the Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with all accounts, so you will be able to shield any folder within just a few seconds. You will simply have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the particular folder which must be secured (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to type in the username and password which will be used to access the folder in question in the future. Any secured folder will have a padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see instantly what content is secured and what is not. If required, you could make a number of different sets of login credentials for the exact same folder.
