If you wish to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to switch on password protection for a specific folder - either the primary website folder or another one below it. When this feature is enabled, a pop-up will appear each and every time someone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login details will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured only the domain.com folder. In case the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any method of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that no one shall be able access the secured content. The function can be helpful in a variety of cases - if only certain individuals should be able to see particular files, if you are building an Internet site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, etc.
Password Protected Directories in Hosting
If you use any of our hosting solutions, you shall be able to make password-protected areas with ease even if you don't have any experience with this kind of matters. We have incorporated a very easy-to-use point-and-click tool in the Hepsia CP, offered with all accounts, so you'll be able to secure any folder within merely seconds. You will have to choose a domain or a subdomain and the particular folder that should be secured (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to type in the preferred username and password that'll be used to access the folder in question when you need it. Each secured folder will have a padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see immediately what content is secured and what is not. If necessary, you may create a number of sets of login credentials for the exact same folder.
