If you wish to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you are able to activate password protection for a particular folder - either the primary Internet site folder or a different one below it. When this option is enabled, a pop-up will appear anytime a person tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured the domain.com folder. In case the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any way of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The option can be helpful in a variety of cases - if only a few individuals need to be able to see specific files, if you work on a website and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, and so forth.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Web Hosting
Creating a password-protected area shall take only several clicks and a few seconds when you host your websites in a shared web hosting account with us. You'll not need to do anything challenging - you'll need to choose a domain/subdomain, to pick which folder under it must be protected, and then to type in the login name and password that'll be used to access that folder. When a number of individuals need their own login details, there won't be a problem to make several different usernames with access to the same exact folder. All secured folders will appear with a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you will always know where this feature is activated. If you wish to disable the protection function for any folder, you can disable it from the same exact section of the Control Panel in which you have enabled it.
