If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you'll be able to activate password protection for a given folder - either the main Internet site folder or another one below it. When this function is active, a pop-up shall appear each time anyone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected just the domain.com folder. In case the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no method of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that nobody will be able to access the shielded content. The function may be helpful in a variety of situations - if only certain individuals need to be able to see particular files, if you work on an Internet site and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, etc.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Website Hosting
If you use any of our cloud website hosting products, you can set up password-protected areas with ease even if you don't have any experience with such matters. We've integrated a really easy-to-use point-and-click tool in the Hepsia CP, supplied with all accounts, so you'll be able to secure any folder within just a few seconds. You'll only have to choose a domain or a subdomain and the exact folder which should be secured (the main one or a subfolder), and then to type the desired username and password that will be used to access the folder in question at some point. Each protected folder shall have padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you will be able to see instantly what content is protected and what is not. If required, you can create several different sets of login details for exactly the same folder.
