If you'd like to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can enable password protection for a certain folder - either the main site folder or a different one below it. Whenever this function is active, a pop-up will appear each and every time somebody attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected just the domain.com folder. If the details are not 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 secured content. The option could be useful in a number of situations - if only some people should be able to see particular files, if you are developing a website and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.
Password Protected Directories in Web Hosting
With the password protection tool provided with every web hosting plan which we offer, you'll be able to shield any content that you have within your account with just a few mouse clicks. Due to the fact that the tool is a component of our revolutionary Hepsia Control Panel, it offers the same uncomplicated interface and you'll not need any special skills to use it. When you check out the Password Protection section, you'll need to select one of the domains or subdomains you have in the account and then decide if the protection should be turned on for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password that you'd like and you will be set. A small padlock icon within the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the very same way you will be able to add many usernames and passwords for the same folder if you'd like several people to have their own login credentials.
