If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to switch on password protection for a given folder - either the primary website folder or a different one below it. In case this feature is activated, a pop-up will appear anytime a person tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured the domain.com folder. When the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any way of getting around this restriction, so you can be sure that nobody will be able to access the shielded content. The feature could be helpful in a variety of situations - if only a number of people need to be able to see particular files, if you are developing an Internet site and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, etc.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Website Hosting

With the password protection tool that is included with each and every cloud website hosting package that we provide, you will be able to protect any content that you have inside your account with merely a few mouse clicks. Because the tool is an element of our innovative Hepsia Control Panel, it has the exact same simple interface and you'll not require any special skills to use it. When you visit the Password Protection section, you will have to pick one of the domains or subdomains you have in the account and then decide whether the protection should be activated for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password that you'd like and you'll be all set. A tiny padlock icon in the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the same way you will be able to include several usernames and passwords for the same folder if you want several people to have their own login credentials.
