If you'd like to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you are able to switch on password protection for a particular folder - either the main site folder or another one below it. If this option is active, a pop-up will 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 shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected just the domain.com folder. In case the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any method of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one shall be able access the protected content. The feature could be useful in a number of scenarios - if only some individuals should be able to see certain files, if you work on a site and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, and so on.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Web Hosting

With the password protection tool that comes with every cloud web hosting plan that we provide, you shall be able to shield any content which you have within your account with merely a few mouse clicks. As the tool is part of our innovative Hepsia Control Panel, it provides exactly the same simple interface and you will not need any special skills to use it. When you check out the Password Protection section, you'll have to choose one of the domains or subdomains you have within the account and then choose whether the protection should be active for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then enter the username and the password that you want and you'll be set. A tiny padlock icon within the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the exact same way you will be able to include many usernames and passwords for the same folder if you would like several people to have their own login credentials.
