If you would like keep some content hidden from the public eye, you'll be able to enable password protection for a certain folder - either the main site folder or any other one below it. In case this option is active, a pop-up shall appear anytime somebody attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected the domain.com folder. If the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any method of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The feature may be helpful in a number of situations - if only a few individuals should be able to see specific files, if you are building a site and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, and so on.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting
When you use any of our cloud hosting packages, you can make password-protected areas with ease even if you don't have any experience with this type of matters. We've integrated an incredibly easy-to-use point-and-click tool into the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts, so you'll be able to shield any folder within merely seconds. You will simply have to choose a domain or a subdomain and the exact folder which has to be secured (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 at some point. Each secured folder will have a padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you will be able to see immediately what content is protected and what's not. If necessary, you could make several different sets of login details for the exact same folder.
