If you'd like to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could enable password protection for a specific folder - either the primary website folder or a different one below it. In case this option is active, a pop-up shall appear anytime somebody 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 in case you have secured the domain.com folder. In case the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no way to get around this restriction, so you can be sure that nobody shall be able access the shielded content. The function may be useful in numerous cases - if only a few individuals should be able to see certain files, if you work on a site and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, etc.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting
With the password protection tool that is included with every cloud hosting
plan that we offer, you will be able to secure any content which you have within your account with only a few clicks. Since the tool is a component of our innovative Hepsia Control Panel, it offers the same uncomplicated interface and you'll not require any special skills to use it. As soon as you go to the Password Protection section, you'll have to select one of the domains or subdomains which you have within the account and then choose if the protection should be activated for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password that you would like and you will be ready. A small padlock symbol inside the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the exact same way you will be able to include a number of usernames and passwords for the same folder if you want several people to have their own login credentials.
