If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you are able to switch on password protection for a specific folder - either the primary website folder or another one below it. Whenever this option is turned on, a pop-up will appear each and every time a person 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 if you have protected only the domain.com folder. In case the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no way to get around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody shall be able access the protected content. The function could be helpful in a variety of situations - if only certain people need to be able to see specific files, if you are building a site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Web Hosting
With the password protection tool provided with every shared web hosting
package deal that we offer, you'll be able to secure any content which you have inside your account with just a few clicks.

When you visit the Password Protection section, you'll have to pick one of the domains or subdomains which you have within the account and then choose if the protection should be turned on for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then enter the username and the password that you would like and you'll be set. A tiny padlock symbol in the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to set up password protection for any content which you have inside your semi-dedicated server
account. We've integrated an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel through which you will be able to enable the function with several mouse clicks and with no difficulties, even if you are not quite tech-savvy. You will simply have to select the hostname (domain or subdomain), the particular folder that has to be protected (the main folder or a subfolder) as well as the login name and password. The protection will take effect at once, so if you attempt to open the password-protected URL in your browser, you'll have to type in the newly created login details in order to proceed. You'll also be able to give different usernames for the exact same folder to a number of individuals, so you'll not need to share the same login credentials with everyone. Any password-protected folder will have a compact padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you shall be able to recognize this sort of folders easily.
