If this option is turned on, a pop-up will appear anytime 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 when you have protected only the domain.com folder. In case the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one shall be able access the secured content. The option could be useful in various situations - if only a number of people should be able to see certain files, if you are building a website and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, etc.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

When you use any of our cloud hosting packages, you will be able to create password-protected areas easily even if you don't have any experience with such matters. We have integrated an incredibly easy-to-use point-and-click tool within the Hepsia CP, offered with all accounts, so you'll be able to shield any folder within merely seconds. You'll only have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder which must be protected (the main one or a subfolder), and then to enter the desired username and password that will be used to access the folder in question later on. Each and every secured folder will have a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you shall be able to see at a glance what content is protected and what is not. When necessary, you could make a number of different sets of login details for exactly the same folder.

Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia Control Panel it's part of, so you shall not need to type in any code at any time. You'll only need to pick one of the domains/subdomains that 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 ready. The protection shall be activated right away, so anybody who tries to access the freshly protected folder will have to input the correct login details. In case various individuals have to be able to open precisely the same content, you could make a separate username for each.
