If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you could activate password protection for a specific folder - either the primary site folder or any other one below it. In case this feature is enabled, a pop-up shall appear each and every time anyone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have protected only the domain.com folder. When the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no way of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that no one will be able to access the secured content. The function may be beneficial in various cases - if only some people should be able to see specific files, if you are developing a site and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, and so on.

As the tool is a component of our ground breaking Hepsia CP, it features exactly the same uncomplicated interface and you will not need any special skills to use it. As soon as you check out the Password Protection section, you'll need to pick one of the domains or subdomains which you have inside the account and then decide whether the protection should be turned on for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then enter the username and the password that you would like and you'll be ready. A tiny padlock icon within the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the same exact way you'll be able to add multiple usernames and passwords for the same folder if you'd like several people to have their own login credentials.
