If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you are able to enable password protection for a particular folder - either the main Internet site folder or another one below it. In case this function is active, a pop-up will appear each and every time someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured just the domain.com folder. When the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no way to get around this restriction, so you can rest assured that no one will be able to access the shielded content. The option could be helpful in a number of scenarios - if only a few individuals should be able to see certain files, if you are creating a website and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, and so on.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll be able to secure any content which you have uploaded through our protection tool. Its interface is as basic and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's part of, so you shall not need to type in any code at any time. You'll simply need to select one of the domains/subdomains that you have in the website hosting account and to choose which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. After that you can type in the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be good to go. The protection shall be switched on straightaway, so anyone that attempts to access the freshly secured folder shall have to input the accurate login information. In cases where a number of people should be able to open the same content, you could make a separate username for each of them.
