Password Protected Directories
What are password-protected directories? What do they indicate for your web site?
If you would like keep some content hidden from the public eye, you are able to activate password protection for a specific folder - either the main website folder or any other one below it. In case this feature is enabled, a pop-up shall appear anytime anyone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured only the domain.com folder. When the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no method of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one will be able to access the secured content. The feature may be useful in numerous scenarios - if only a few individuals 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 Website Hosting
Setting up a password-protected area will take no more than a couple of mouse clicks and a few seconds if you host your Internet sites in a shared website hosting
account with our company. You'll not need to do anything complex - you'll need to choose a domain/subdomain, to select which folder under it must be protected, and then to input the login name and password that will be used to access that folder. When a number of individuals require their own login credentials, there won't be a problem to create a number of different usernames with access to the same exact folder. All secured folders will appear with a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you shall always know where this function is activated. If you would like to disable the security feature for any folder, you can deactivate it from the exact same section of the CP where you have enabled it.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server
account with our company, you'll be able to secure any content that you have uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it's part of, so you'll not have to type in any code at any time. You will simply need to pick one of the domains/subdomains that you have in the website hosting account and to select which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. After that you can type the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be good to go. The protection shall be activated straightaway, so anybody who tries to access the freshly secured folder will have to type in the correct login info. If several individuals must be able to access precisely the same content, you can create a separate username for each of them.
