If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you'll be able to activate password protection for a specific folder - either the primary site folder or a different one below it. If this feature is active, a pop-up shall appear every time a person attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login info will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected the domain.com folder. When the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody will be able to access the protected content. The option could be helpful in a variety of scenarios - if only certain individuals must be able to see certain files, if you are building a website and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Website Hosting

With the password protection tool supplied with each and every shared website hosting package that we provide, you'll be able to protect any content which you have in your account with merely a few mouse clicks. As the tool is a component of our ground breaking Hepsia Control Panel, it offers the same uncomplicated interface and you will not require any special skills to use it. Once you navigate to the Password Protection section, you'll have to select one of the domains or subdomains that you have within the account and then choose whether the protection should be active for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then enter the username and the password that you would like and you shall be all set. A tiny padlock symbol inside the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the very same way you'll be able to include several usernames and passwords for the same folder if you want several people to have their own login credentials.
