If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could enable password protection for a particular folder - either the main Internet site folder or any other one below it. When this option is active, a pop-up shall appear anytime a person tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured only the domain.com folder. If the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any method of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody shall be able access the shielded content. The option may be useful in numerous scenarios - if only a number of individuals need to be able to see specific files, if you are creating a website and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so on.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Web Hosting

With the password protection tool supplied with each and every cloud web hosting plan which we provide, you'll be able to shield any content which you have in your account with only a few clicks. As the tool is an element of our ground breaking Hepsia Control Panel, it features the exact same simple interface and you will not require any special skills to use it. Once you visit the Password Protection section, you will need to select one of the domains or subdomains which you have in the account and then choose whether the protection should be turned on for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password that you would like and you will be ready. A little padlock icon inside the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the very same way you'll be able to add multiple usernames and passwords for the same folder if you would like several people to have their own login credentials.
