If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you'll be able to enable password protection for a particular folder - either the main website folder or any other one below it. If this function is enabled, a pop-up will appear each and every time somebody tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured the domain.com folder. In case the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no method of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that no one shall be able access the protected content. The option could be useful in a variety of scenarios - if only some individuals should be able to see certain files, if you are developing an Internet site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, etc.
Password Protected Directories in Web Hosting
If you use any of our web hosting products, you can create password-protected areas easily even if you have no experience with this sort of matters. We have incorporated a very easy-to-use point-and-click tool into the Hepsia CP, which comes with all accounts, so you'll be able to secure any folder within a matter of seconds. You'll simply have to choose 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 which will be used to access the folder in question in the future. Every protected folder will have a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you shall be able to see easily what content is secured and what's not. If necessary, you can create several different sets of login details for the same folder.
