If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you'll be able to switch on password protection for a particular folder - either the primary Internet site folder or a different one below it. When this option 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 details shall be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured the domain.com folder. When the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any way to get around this restriction, so you can rest assured that no one shall be able access the protected content. The option can be useful in a variety of situations - if only a number of individuals should be able to see specific files, if you are building a website and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.
Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting
Creating a password-protected area will take no more than a few mouse clicks and a few seconds if you host your Internet sites inside a cloud hosting account with our company. You'll not have to do anything complicated - you will have to select a domain/subdomain, to select which folder under it must be secured, and then to type in 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 won't be a problem to set up several different usernames with access to the very same folder. All protected folders shall appear with a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you shall always know where this feature is active. If you would like to deactivate the protection feature for any folder, you can disable it from the same section of the CP where you have enabled it.
