If you would like keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to enable password protection for a given folder - either the main site folder or another one below it. When this feature is turned on, a pop-up will appear each and every time a person attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have protected the domain.com folder. When the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any way to get around this restriction, so you can be sure that nobody will be able to access the shielded content. The feature could be beneficial in a variety of scenarios - if only a number of individuals need to be able to see certain files, if you are building an Internet site and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, and so on.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting
If you use any of our cloud hosting packages, you'll be able to create password-protected areas with ease even if you have zero experience with such matters. We have integrated an extremely easy-to-use point-and-click tool in the Hepsia CP, provided with all accounts, so you shall be able to shield any folder within a matter of seconds. You will simply have to choose a domain or a subdomain and the exact folder that must be protected (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to type the desired username and password that will be used to access the folder in question later on. Any protected folder shall have padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see instantly what content is secured and what is not. If necessary, you can create several different sets of login credentials for exactly the same folder.
