If you would like keep some content hidden from the public eye, you are able to activate password protection for a particular folder - either the primary Internet site folder or another one below it. If this option is turned on, a pop-up shall 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 info will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected the domain.com folder. When the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that nobody shall be able access the shielded content. The option can be helpful in numerous cases - if only certain people should be able to see specific files, if you are building an Internet 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 solutions, you shall be able to set up password-protected areas with ease even if you don't have any experience with this kind of matters. We have incorporated an extremely easy-to-use point-and-click tool within the Hepsia CP, supplied with all accounts, so you'll be able to shield any folder within a matter of seconds. You'll simply have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the exact folder which should be secured (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 when you need it. Each and every protected folder will have a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you shall be able to see at a glance what content is secured and what is not. If necessary, you may create a number of sets of login credentials for the same folder.
