If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to switch on password protection for a specific folder - either the main site folder or any other one below it. If this function is active, a pop-up shall appear each and every time someone tries 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 when you have protected the domain.com folder. When the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any way to get around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one will be able to access the protected content. The function may be beneficial in various situations - if only certain people should be able to see certain files, if you work on a site and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so forth.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting
When you use any of our shared hosting packages, you can create password-protected areas effortlessly even if you have zero experience with this kind of matters. We have incorporated a really easy-to-use point-and-click tool within the Hepsia Control Panel, offered with all accounts, so you'll be able to shield any folder within just seconds. You'll simply have to select a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder which should be protected (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 when you need it. Each and every secured folder shall have padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you will be able to see instantly what content is protected and what's not. If necessary, you may create a number of sets of login credentials for exactly the same folder.
