Whenever this option is activated, a pop-up shall appear each and every time a person attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected just the domain.com folder. If the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no way to get around this restriction, so you can rest assured that no one shall be able access the shielded content. The feature may be useful in various cases - if only certain people need to be able to see specific files, if you work on an Internet site and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Website Hosting

Creating a password-protected area will take no more than several mouse clicks and a few seconds when you host your Internet sites inside a cloud website hosting account with our company. You won't need to do anything complex - you will have to select a domain/subdomain, to choose which folder under it has to be protected, and then to input the login name and password that'll be used to access that folder.

All protected folders will appear with a padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you shall always know where this function is activated. If you wish to turn off the protection feature for any folder, you can deactivate it from the same exact section of the CP where you have enabled it.

You will simply need to pick one of the domains/subdomains which you have inside the web hosting account and to choose which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. After that you can type the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you shall be good to go. The protection shall be enabled at once, so anyone that attempts to access the recently secured folder shall have to type in the accurate login information. When several people must be able to access exactly the same content, you can create a separate username for each of them.
