If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you are able to activate password protection for a particular folder - either the primary site folder or a different one below it. When this feature is activated, a pop-up will appear each and every time someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login details will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected the domain.com folder. When the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no way to get around this restriction, so you can be certain that no one shall be able access the protected content. The option can be useful in various scenarios - if only a number of people must be able to see specific files, if you are creating a site and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so on.

When you use any of our cloud web hosting products, you shall be able to create password-protected areas without difficulty even if you have no experience with this sort of matters. We've incorporated an extremely easy-to-use point-and-click tool in the Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with all accounts, so you'll be able to secure any folder within merely seconds. You'll only have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the exact folder which must be protected (the main one or a subfolder), and then to type the username and password that will be used to access the folder in question in the future. Every secured folder shall have padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you shall be able to see easily what content is secured and what's not. If needed, you could make a number of sets of login credentials for the exact same folder.
