If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to activate password protection for a certain folder - either the main site folder or a different one below it. In case this function is activated, a pop-up shall appear every time someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected only the domain.com folder. In case the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no way to get around this restriction, so you can rest assured that nobody will be able to access the protected content. The option may be helpful in a variety of scenarios - if only a few people need to be able to see certain files, if you work on a site and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so on.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Web Hosting
All of our Linux cloud web hosting
include an incredibly useful tool which will allow you to protect any folder in your account from unauthorized access with simply two clicks. Once you log in to your Hepsia website hosting CP, you will only have to visit the Password Protection section, to pick the main domain or subdomain, to specify the folder which has to be secured - the root folder or some folder under it, and then to type in the username and the password which must be used so as to access the content in question. The function shall be activated right away, so if you try to open the folder/website, you will be prompted to input the login info. You could set up or remove a number of usernames for the exact same folder, if necessary. If you navigate to the File Manager section, all password-protected folders will be indicated by a compact padlock icon.

By following exactly the same steps, you are able to set up a variety of login credentials for the same folder to give several people their own username/password. All secured folders will feature a small padlock sign in the File Manager section.
