If you would like keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can switch on password protection for a certain folder - either the main site folder or another one below it. Whenever this option is active, a pop-up shall appear anytime somebody tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured only the domain.com folder. If 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 feature can be helpful in numerous scenarios - if only a number of individuals should be able to see certain files, if you work on a site and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Web Hosting

Setting up a password-protected area shall take no more than a few clicks and a few seconds if you host your sites in a cloud web hosting account with us. You won't need to do anything challenging - you will have to choose a domain/subdomain, to select which folder under it has to be secured, and then to type the login name and password that'll be used to access that folder. In case a number of individuals need their own login credentials, there won't be a problem to create a number of different usernames with access to the same folder. All protected folders shall appear with a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you'll always know where this function is active. If you want to deactivate the protection feature for any folder, you can disable it from the very same section of the Control Panel in which you have enabled it.
