Password Protected Directories
Find out how to make a protected and user-only area in your website with password-protected directories.
If you'd like to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you are able to activate password protection for a given folder - either the primary website folder or any other one below it. In case this feature is active, a pop-up shall appear every time someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured the domain.com folder. In case the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no way to get around this restriction, so you can rest assured that no one will be able to access the protected content. The option could be helpful in a variety of scenarios - if only a number of 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 prior to it being completed, etc.
Password Protected Directories in Hosting
All our Linux hosting
feature a very handy tool that will enable you to shield any folder within your account from unauthorized access with simply two clicks. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia web hosting CP, you will only have to go to the Password Protection section, to select the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that has to be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to enter the username and the password which must be used in order to access the content in question. The feature shall be active straightaway, so in case you attempt to open the folder/website, you'll be prompted to type in the login details. You could create or remove many usernames for the very same folder, when necessary. If you check out the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be marked with a small padlock icon.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server
account with our company, you shall be able to secure any content which you have uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it is part of, so you'll not need to input any code at any time. You will only have to choose one of the domains/subdomains you have inside the web hosting account and to pick which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can input the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be ready. The protection will be activated straightaway, so anyone who attempts to access the freshly secured folder will have to enter the correct login details. In cases where a number of people should be able to access the same content, you could make a separate username for each.
