If you would like keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can switch on password protection for a specific folder - either the main site folder or a different one below it. Whenever this function is turned on, a pop-up will appear anytime somebody tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured only the domain.com folder. When the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody shall be able access the protected content. The function may be helpful in various situations - if only a few individuals should be able to see certain files, if you work on a website and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, and so on.

When you navigate to the Password Protection section, you'll need to select one of the domains or subdomains you have inside the account and then choose whether the protection should be active for the main folder or for a subfolder.

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to shield any content that you have uploaded via our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it is a part of, so you shall not need to enter any code at any time. You'll only have to choose one of the domains/subdomains that you have inside the hosting account and to select which folder must be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. You may then type in the username and the password, which will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be good to go. The protection will be turned on straightaway, so anyone who attempts to access the freshly protected folder shall have to enter the right login info. When several individuals have to be able to open the exact same content, you can create a separate username for each one.
