If you would like keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to activate password protection for a particular folder - either the main website folder or a different one below it. If this option is turned on, a pop-up will appear each and every time anyone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured the domain.com folder. In case the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no way to get around this restriction, so you can be certain that no one will be able to access the shielded content. The feature could be helpful in various situations - if only a number of individuals must be able to see particular files, if you are developing a website and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll be able to protect any content that you have uploaded by using our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it's part of, so you will not have to enter any code at any time. You'll simply need to select one of the domains/subdomains which you have inside the web hosting account and to determine which folder must be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. After that you can type in the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you'll be all set. The protection shall be enabled right away, so anyone who tries to access the freshly secured folder will have to enter the accurate login information. In case various people have to be able to access exactly the same content, you could make a separate username for each one.
