If you'd like to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you are able to activate password protection for a certain folder - either the primary site folder or another one below it. When this feature is turned on, a pop-up shall appear each and every time someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured the domain.com folder. When the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no way to get around this restriction, so you can rest assured that no one will be able to access the shielded content. The function may be beneficial in a variety of scenarios - if only some individuals should be able to see certain files, if you work on a site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so on.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

With the password protection tool that comes with every cloud hosting plan that we provide, you shall be able to shield any content that you have inside your account with only a few mouse clicks. Because the tool is an element of our revolutionary Hepsia Control Panel, it features the exact same uncomplicated interface and you shall not require any special skills to use it. Once you navigate to the Password Protection section, you'll have to choose one of the domains or subdomains which you have inside the account and then decide whether the protection should be turned on for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password that you'd like and you'll be ready. A small padlock symbol in the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the same way you'll be able to add multiple usernames and passwords for the same folder if you want several people to have their own login credentials.
