Password Protected Directories
What are password-protected directories? What do they signify for your website?
If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you'll be able to activate password protection for a certain folder - either the main website folder or any other one below it. In case this function is activated, a pop-up shall appear every time a person attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have protected just the domain.com folder. If the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any way to get around this restriction, so you can be positive that nobody shall be able access the shielded content. The feature can be useful in numerous cases - if only a few individuals must be able to see specific files, if you work on a site and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, and so forth.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting
With the password protection tool that comes with every single cloud hosting package deal which we offer, you'll be able to protect any content that you have in your account with just a few mouse clicks. Because the tool is part of our ground breaking Hepsia CP, it provides the same simple interface and you will not require any special skills to use it. Once you check out the Password Protection section, you'll have to pick one of the domains or subdomains that you have within the account and then decide whether the protection should be switched on for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password you want and you'll be ready. A tiny padlock icon within the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the exact same way you shall be able to include multiple usernames and passwords for the same folder if you would like several people to have their own login credentials.
