If you'd like to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you can activate password protection for a particular folder - either the main Internet site folder or a different one below it. In case this feature is active, a pop-up will appear anytime a person attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected just the domain.com folder. If the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no way to get around this restriction, so you can be sure that no one shall be able access the protected content. The option could be beneficial in a variety of situations - if only some people should be able to see particular files, if you are creating an Internet site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Web Hosting

With the password protection tool that is included with every cloud web hosting package that we offer, you will be able to secure any content that you have in your account with merely a few clicks. Since the tool is part of our innovative Hepsia CP, it provides the exact same simple interface and you'll not need any special skills to use it. When you go to the Password Protection section, you'll have to pick one of the domains or subdomains that you have inside the account and then choose if the protection should be active for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password that you want and you shall be all set. A small padlock symbol in the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the exact same way you shall be able to include multiple usernames and passwords for the same folder if you'd like several people to have their own login credentials.
