If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you'll be able to switch on password protection for a certain folder - either the main website folder or any other one below it. If this option is activated, a pop-up shall appear anytime a person tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured the domain.com folder. When the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any method of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that no one will be able to access the protected content. The option can be helpful in a number of cases - if only a number of individuals should be able to see certain files, if you are developing an Internet site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so on.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

With the password protection tool that comes with every single cloud hosting package which we provide, you shall be able to secure any content that you have in your account with merely a few mouse clicks. Since the tool is a component of our innovative Hepsia Control Panel, it offers exactly the same simple interface and you shall not need any special skills to use it. When you go to the Password Protection section, you will have to select one of the domains or subdomains that you have inside the account and then choose whether the protection should be turned on for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password you want and you shall be ready. A tiny padlock icon inside the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the exact same way you'll be able to add multiple usernames and passwords for the same folder if you would like several people to have their own login credentials.
