If you would like keep some content hidden from the public eye, you are able to enable password protection for a given folder - either the primary Internet site folder or another one below it. If this function is enabled, a pop-up will appear every time anyone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login info will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured just the domain.com folder. If the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no method of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that nobody shall be able access the protected content. The feature can be beneficial in a variety of scenarios - if only a few people should be able to see particular files, if you are creating a website and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, and so on.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Hosting

When you log in to your Hepsia website hosting CP, you'll simply have to navigate to the Password Protection section, to select the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which should be protected - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type in the username and the password that should be used in order to access the content in question. The feature shall be turned on at once, so in case you attempt to open the folder/website, you will be prompted to type in the login details. You can set up or remove many usernames for the very same folder, when necessary. If you navigate to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be indicated by a tiny padlock icon.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to create password protection for any content you have within your semi-dedicated server account. We have integrated an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel using which you will be able to activate the function with several mouse clicks and with no troubles, even if you are not very tech-savvy. You will only have to choose the hostname (domain or subdomain), the particular folder which must be secured (the main folder or a subfolder) as well as the login name and password. The protection shall take effect right away, so if you make an effort to open the password-protected URL inside your web browser, you'll need to input the newly created login credentials before you can proceed. Additionally, you will be able to give different usernames for the same folder to a number of individuals, so you will not have to share the same login credentials with anybody. Each password-protected folder shall have a tiny padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you will be able to recognize this kind of folders with ease.
