If you wish to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to enable password protection for a particular folder - either the primary website folder or any other one below it. When this option is active, a pop-up shall appear each time anyone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured just the domain.com folder. When the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that no one will be able to access the protected content. The feature may be useful in numerous cases - if only some people need to be able to see specific files, if you are building an Internet site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so on.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Website Hosting
When you use any of our cloud website hosting plans, you shall be able to set up password-protected areas with ease even if you have zero experience with this type of matters. We have integrated a really easy-to-use point-and-click tool within the Hepsia CP, supplied with all accounts, so you will be able to secure any folder within just seconds. You'll simply have to choose a domain or a subdomain and the particular folder that has to be protected (the main one or a subfolder), and then to type in the username and password that will be used to access the folder in question later on. Each and every secured folder shall have padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you will be able to see at a glance what content is secured and what is not. If required, you could make a number of sets of login details for the same folder.
