If you'd like to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you are able to enable password protection for a certain folder - either the main Internet site folder or a different one below it. When this option is enabled, a pop-up shall appear each time somebody tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected just the domain.com folder. If 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 rest assured that no one shall be able access the secured content. The function may be beneficial in numerous cases - if only a number of people should be able to see specific files, if you are building a website and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, etc.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Web Hosting

When you use any of our shared web hosting plans, you will be able to set up password-protected areas effortlessly even if you have zero experience with this kind of matters. We've built in a very easy-to-use point-and-click tool into the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all accounts, so you'll be able to secure any folder within just seconds. You will simply have to choose a domain or a subdomain and the exact folder that must be protected (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to type in the username and password that'll be used to access the folder in question later on. Any protected folder will have a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see immediately what content is protected and what is not. If required, you may create a number of different sets of login details for the same folder.

We've integrated an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel using which you shall be able to enable the function with several clicks and with no problems, even if you're not quite tech-savvy. You will only need to choose the hostname (domain or subdomain), the particular folder which needs to be protected (the primary folder or a subfolder) plus the login name and password. The protection will take effect instantly, so if you try to open the password-protected URL inside your Internet browser, you will need to input the newly created login details before you can proceed. You will also be able to give different usernames for the very same folder to a number of individuals, so you will not have to share the same login details with everybody. Each password-protected folder shall have a tiny padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you shall be able to recognize such folders in no time.
