If you would like keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could activate password protection for a certain folder - either the primary Internet site folder or any other one below it. When this option is active, a pop-up shall appear anytime someone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login details will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured the domain.com folder. When the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody will be able to access the protected content. The feature can be useful in a variety of scenarios - if only a number of people must be able to see specific files, if you work on a site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting
When you use any of our cloud hosting plans, you will be able to set up password-protected areas effortlessly even if you have no experience with this type of matters. We have built in a really easy-to-use point-and-click tool in the Hepsia CP, which comes with all accounts, so you'll be able to secure any folder within just a few seconds. You will have to select a domain or a subdomain and the exact folder which has to be protected (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to enter the preferred username and password that will be used to access the folder in question at some point. Each protected folder will have a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you shall be able to see easily what content is secured and what is not. If required, you may create several different sets of login credentials for exactly the same folder.
