If you would like keep some content concealed from the public eye, you could enable password protection for a particular folder - either the primary website folder or a different one below it. When this feature is enabled, a pop-up will appear every time a person tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured only the domain.com folder. If the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no way to get around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody shall be able access the secured content. The feature could be helpful in various scenarios - if only certain individuals need to be able to see specific files, if you work on an Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, and so on.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

With the password protection tool that comes with each cloud hosting plan which we provide, you will be able to shield any content that you have in your account with simply a few clicks. As the tool is a component of our innovative Hepsia CP, it provides the exact same simple interface and you shall not need any special skills to use it. When you visit the Password Protection section, you'll have to choose one of the domains or subdomains you have in the account and then choose if the protection should be activated for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then enter the username and the password that you want and you shall be ready. A small padlock symbol in 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'd like several people to have their own login credentials.
