If you'd like to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you are able to activate password protection for a given folder - either the primary Internet site folder or any other one below it. When this function is enabled, a pop-up will appear each and every time anyone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured the domain.com folder. When the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no method of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that no one will be able to access the shielded content. The feature can be helpful in various scenarios - if only some people must be able to see specific files, if you are developing a site and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so on.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Web Hosting
Setting up a password-protected area shall take no more than several mouse clicks and a few seconds if you host your Internet sites in a shared web hosting
account with our company. You'll not need to do anything difficult - you will need to pick a domain/subdomain, to select which folder under it should be secured, and then to input the login name and password that'll be used to access that folder. In case a number of individuals need their own login details, there shall not be a problem to create a variety of different usernames with access to the same folder. All secured folders will appear with a padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you shall always know where this feature is active. If you wish to turn off the protection feature for any folder, you can disable it from the same section of the Control Panel in which you have enabled it.

account with us.

If you repeat the same simple steps, you shall be able to create different usernames for the very same password-protected area, so many people shall be able to access a particular folder with their own login credentials. You will be able to see the secured folders instantly either in the exact same section of the Control Panel or inside the File Manager section where you will detect them by their tiny padlock icons.
