If you would like keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can enable password protection for a given folder - either the primary Internet site folder or a different one below it. In case this option is active, a pop-up shall appear each and every time anyone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured just 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 positive that nobody shall be able access the shielded content. The feature can be useful in numerous scenarios - if only a number of individuals must be able to see specific files, if you are building an Internet site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

When you use any of our cloud hosting plans, you'll be able to create password-protected areas without difficulty even if you don't have any experience with this sort of matters. We have included an incredibly easy-to-use point-and-click tool into the Hepsia CP, supplied with all accounts, so you shall be able to protect any folder within a matter of seconds. You will simply have to select a domain or a subdomain and the particular folder which has to be secured (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to enter the preferred username and password that will be used to access the folder in question when you need it. Every secured folder will have a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you shall be able to see at a glance what content is protected and what is not. If necessary, you could make a number of different sets of login details for the same folder.
