If you would like keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can enable password protection for a specific folder - either the primary Internet site folder or a different one below it. If this feature is active, a pop-up shall appear each time anyone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured only the domain.com folder. When the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody will be able to access the shielded content. The function may be beneficial in various situations - if only a number of individuals must be able to see particular files, if you work on an Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, etc.

Creating a password-protected area shall take just several mouse clicks and a few seconds when you host your websites inside a cloud web hosting account with our company. You shall not need to do anything difficult - you'll have to pick a domain/subdomain, to choose which folder under it should be protected, and then to enter the login name and password which will be used to access that folder. When a number of people require their own login credentials, there won't be a problem to set up several different usernames with access to the same exact folder. All secured folders will appear with a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you will always know where this feature is active. If you would like to deactivate the security function for any folder, you can disable it from the very same section of the Control Panel where you have enabled it.

We've added an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel through which you shall be able to enable the function with several mouse clicks and without any difficulties, even if you're not very tech-savvy. You'll simply have to pick the hostname (domain or subdomain), the particular folder which has to be protected (the primary folder or a subfolder) plus the login name and password. The protection will take effect at once, so if you make an effort to open the password-protected URL within your Internet browser, you will have to type in the newly created login details before you proceed. You'll also be able to give different usernames for the same folder to a number of people, so you will not need to share the same login details with everyone. Each password-protected folder will have a small padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you shall be able to recognize this kind of folders in no time.
