If you'd like to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you'll be able to enable password protection for a certain folder - either the primary Internet site folder or a different one below it. Whenever this function is turned on, a pop-up will appear every time anyone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured only the domain.com folder. When the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any way of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that no one shall be able access the shielded content. The feature could be beneficial in a number of situations - if only some people should be able to see certain files, if you are building an Internet site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, etc.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

All our Linux cloud hosting include an exceptionally convenient tool that will allow you to protect any folder within your account from unauthorized access with just two clicks. As soon as you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will simply have to go to the Password Protection section, to pick the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which has to be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to input the username and the password that have to be used so as to access the content in question. The feature shall be turned on at once, so in case you attempt to open the folder/website, you will be prompted to input the login credentials. You can create or remove many usernames for the very same folder, when necessary. If you go to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be marked with a little padlock icon.
