If you wish to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can enable password protection for a certain folder - either the primary Internet site folder or any other one below it. When this function is activated, a pop-up shall appear every time someone tries 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 protected 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 rest assured that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The option may be useful in a number of scenarios - if only certain individuals need to be able to see certain files, if you are building a website and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, and so forth.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Web Hosting
If you use any of our cloud web hosting solutions, you will be able to create password-protected areas easily even if you have no experience with such matters. We have integrated an extremely easy-to-use point-and-click tool into the Hepsia CP, which comes with all accounts, so you will be able to shield any folder within just a few seconds. You'll simply have to select a domain or a subdomain and the exact folder which should be protected (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to enter the preferred username and password that'll be used to access the folder in question at some point. Each secured folder shall have padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you shall be able to see at a glance what content is secured and what is not. If required, you could make several different sets of login credentials for exactly the same folder.
