If you would like keep some content hidden from the public eye, you can enable password protection for a particular folder - either the primary website folder or any other one below it. If this function is activated, a pop-up will appear anytime a person tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected just the domain.com folder. In case the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no method of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The feature could be beneficial in a number of cases - if only some people should be able to see certain files, if you are building a site and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, etc.
Password Protected Directories in Web Hosting
If you use any of our web hosting products, you will be able to create password-protected areas easily even if you have no experience with such matters. We have incorporated an extremely easy-to-use point-and-click tool within the Hepsia CP, provided with all accounts, so you will be able to shield any folder within just seconds. You will only have to select a domain or a subdomain and the exact folder which has to be secured (the main one or a subfolder), and then to enter the preferred username and password which will be used to access the folder in question in the future. Each protected folder shall have padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you will be able to see instantly what content is secured and what is not. If required, you may create a number of sets of login details for the exact same folder.
