Password Protected Directories
Find out how to create a protected and user-only area in your website with password-protected directories.
If you'd like to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can activate password protection for a certain folder - either the primary Internet site folder or a different one below it. When this option is active, a pop-up shall appear anytime anyone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured only 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 be sure that no one will be able to access the secured content. The function can be useful in various cases - if only a number of people need to be able to see certain files, if you are developing a site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.
Password Protected Directories in Website Hosting
All of our website hosting
feature a really convenient tool that'll allow you to secure any folder inside your account from unauthorized access with simply two clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll just have to visit the Password Protection section, to pick the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder that should be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to input the username and the password that have to be used in order to access the content in question. The function will be activated instantly, so in case you make an effort to open the folder/website, you will be prompted to enter the login details. You can set up or remove a number of usernames for the very same folder, if necessary. When you check out the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be indicated by a small padlock icon.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall be able to set up password protection for any content that you have in your semi-dedicated server
account. We have included an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel using which you will be able to enable the function with several clicks and without any complications, even if you are not very tech-savvy. You'll simply need to select the hostname (domain or subdomain), the specific folder that has to be secured (the primary folder or a subfolder) as well as the login name and password. The protection shall take effect right away, so if you make an attempt to open the password-protected URL in your web browser, you will need to enter the newly created login details before you proceed. You will also be able to give different usernames for the very same folder to a number of individuals, so you will not need to share the same login details with anybody. Any password-protected folder shall have a tiny padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you shall be able to recognize this type of folders easily.
