If you'd like to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to switch on password protection for a given folder - either the primary website folder or another one below it. Whenever this function is turned on, a pop-up will 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 details will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured just the domain.com folder. In case the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any way to get around this restriction, so you can be certain that no one will be able to access the protected content. The feature may be beneficial in a variety of situations - if only a few people must be able to see particular files, if you are creating an Internet site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, etc.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Website Hosting

With the password protection tool that is included with each and every cloud website hosting plan that we offer, you'll be able to protect any content that you have inside your account with only a few mouse clicks. Since the tool is an element of our revolutionary Hepsia CP, it provides the same uncomplicated interface and you will not require any special skills to use it. As soon as you navigate to the Password Protection section, you will need to choose one of the domains or subdomains you have inside the account and then choose if the protection should be turned on for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password that you'd like and you'll be all set to go. A little padlock symbol inside the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the same way you shall be able to add several usernames and passwords for the same folder if you want several people to have their own login credentials.
