If you would like keep some content hidden from the public eye, you can switch on password protection for a certain folder - either the main website folder or a different one below it. Whenever this option is active, a pop-up shall appear every time somebody tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected just the domain.com folder. If the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no way to get around this restriction, so you can be sure that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The feature can be helpful in a variety of cases - if only some people should be able to see specific files, if you are developing an Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, and so on.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting

All our shared packages include an exceptionally handy tool that will enable you to shield any folder inside your account from unauthorized access with simply 2 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 enter the username and the password which must be used so as to access the content in question. The function will be turned on instantly, so if you try to open the folder/website, you will be prompted to input the login information. You may set up or remove multiple usernames for the very same folder, if required. If you go to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders shall be shown with a small padlock icon.
