Password Protected Directories
What are password-protected directories? What do they imply for your site?
If you'd like to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to activate password protection for a particular folder - either the main website folder or any other one below it. Whenever this feature is activated, a pop-up shall appear each time somebody attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected the domain.com folder. When the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no method of getting around this restriction, so you can be sure that nobody shall be able access the shielded content. The feature may be beneficial in various cases - if only certain people need to be able to see certain files, if you work on an Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, and so forth.
Password Protected Directories in Hosting
When you use any of our hosting products, you can make password-protected areas without difficulty even if you have zero experience with such matters. We've integrated a very easy-to-use point-and-click tool in the Hepsia Control Panel, offered with all accounts, so you shall be able to protect any folder within just seconds. You will only have to choose a domain or a subdomain and the particular folder that should be secured (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to type in the preferred username and password that will be used to access the folder in question later on. Each protected folder shall have padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see easily what content is secured and what's not. When necessary, you can make a number of different sets of login details for the same folder.
