If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could enable password protection for a particular folder - either the main Internet site folder or another one below it. When this option is active, a pop-up shall appear each time somebody attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured the domain.com folder. If the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no way of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that no one will be able to access the secured content. The function may be helpful in various situations - if only some individuals need to be able to see specific files, if you are developing an Internet site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Website Hosting

With the password protection tool that is included with each shared website hosting package which we offer, you will be able to shield any content which you have inside your account with simply a few mouse clicks. Due to the fact that the tool is part of our ground breaking Hepsia Control Panel, it offers exactly the same uncomplicated interface and you'll not need any special skills to use it. When you navigate to the Password Protection section, you will have to select one of the domains or subdomains which you have within the account and then choose whether the protection should be turned on for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password that you'd like and you'll be ready. A small padlock icon inside the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the exact same way you shall be able to include multiple usernames and passwords for the same folder if you would like several people to have their own login credentials.
