If you'd like to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you are able to switch on password protection for a specific folder - either the primary Internet site folder or a different one below it. If this function is turned on, a pop-up shall appear each and every time someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured just the domain.com folder. When the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no method of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one shall be able access the secured content. The feature could be helpful in a variety of scenarios - if only some people need to be able to see particular files, if you are creating an Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, and so on.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Web Hosting
With the password protection tool that is included with each shared web hosting
package that we provide, you will be able to shield any content which you have in your account with merely a few mouse clicks. Since the tool is part of our revolutionary Hepsia CP, it offers the exact same simple interface and you shall not need any special skills to use it. As soon as you navigate to the Password Protection section, you will have to choose one of the domains or subdomains that you have inside the account and then choose whether the protection should be activated for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password that you would like and you'll be ready. A little padlock symbol within the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the very same way you'll be able to add multiple usernames and passwords for the same folder if you want several people to have their own login credentials.
