If you would like keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to activate password protection for a specific folder - either the primary site folder or any other one below it. In case this function is enabled, a pop-up shall appear anytime somebody attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected just the domain.com folder. In case the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any way to get around this restriction, so you can be sure that nobody shall be able access the protected content. The feature may be beneficial in various scenarios - if only a number of people need to be able to see particular files, if you are creating an Internet site and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, and so on.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Web Hosting

With the password protection tool that comes with every single cloud web hosting plan that we offer, you will be able to shield any content that you have inside your account with simply a few mouse clicks. Since the tool is an element of our innovative Hepsia CP, it provides exactly the same simple interface and you will not require any special skills to use it. Once you go to the Password Protection section, you'll have to choose one of the domains or subdomains that you have inside the account and then decide whether the protection should be active for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then type in the username and the password that you would like and you will be all set to go. A little padlock symbol within the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the very same way you shall be able to add a number of usernames and passwords for the same folder if you want several people to have their own login credentials.
