If you wish to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you are able to switch on password protection for a given folder - either the main Internet site folder or a different one below it. In case this function is enabled, a pop-up will appear each and every time someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured only the domain.com folder. If the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one shall be able access the protected content. The option could be useful in a variety of cases - if only a number of people need to be able to see specific files, if you are creating an Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, and so on.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Web Hosting
All our Linux cloud web hosting include an exceptionally handy tool that will enable you to shield any folder in your account from unauthorized access with just 2 mouse clicks. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia hosting CP, you'll only have to visit the Password Protection section, to select the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that has to be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type the username and the password that should be used so as to access the content in question. The function will be turned on straightaway, so in case you attempt to open the folder/website, you'll be prompted to input the login details. You may set up or remove multiple usernames for the exact same folder, when necessary. When you go to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be marked with a small padlock icon.
