If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you are able to switch on password protection for a given folder - either the primary Internet site folder or any other one below it. Whenever this feature is activated, a pop-up shall appear each time someone tries 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 if you have secured just the domain.com folder. When the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no method of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one shall be able access the protected content. The option can be beneficial in a number of scenarios - if only a few people must be able to see particular files, if you work on a website and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, etc.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting
With the password protection tool that is included with each and every shared hosting plan that we offer, you'll be able to protect any content that you have in your account with just a few mouse clicks. Due to the fact that the tool is a component of our innovative Hepsia CP, it has the exact same simple interface and you'll not need any special skills to use it. When you check out the Password Protection section, you'll need to pick one of the domains or subdomains which you have in the account and then choose if the protection should be switched on for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then type in the username and the password that you would like and you will be set. A tiny padlock icon in the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the same exact way you will be able to add many usernames and passwords for the same folder if you'd like several people to have their own login credentials.
