If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you are able to enable password protection for a given folder - either the main Internet site folder or any other one below it. Whenever this function is turned on, a pop-up will appear each and every time a person tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected only the domain.com folder. In case 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 sure that nobody shall be able access the secured content. The feature may be beneficial in a variety of situations - if only some individuals must be able to see particular files, if you are developing an Internet site and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, etc.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting
Creating a password-protected area shall take no more than a few mouse clicks and a few seconds if you host your websites within a cloud hosting account with our company. You will not need to do anything difficult - you will need to choose a domain/subdomain, to pick which folder under it has to be protected, and then to type the login name and password that'll be used to access that folder. In case a number of people require their own login details, there shall not be a problem to create a variety of different usernames with access to the exact same folder. All protected folders shall appear with a padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you shall always know where this function is active. If you would like to turn off the security function for any folder, you can deactivate it from the very same section of the CP in which you have enabled it.
