If you would like keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could activate password protection for a particular folder - either the primary site folder or a different one below it. In case this option is activated, a pop-up will 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 info shall be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured only the domain.com folder. When the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no way to get around this restriction, so you can be certain that no one will be able to access the protected content. The feature could be useful in a variety of situations - if only a few people must be able to see particular files, if you are building a site and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so forth.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Website Hosting

Creating a password-protected area will take just a couple of mouse clicks and a few seconds if you host your sites in a cloud website hosting account with us. You will not have to do anything complicated - you'll need to select a domain/subdomain, to pick which folder under it should be secured, and then to type the login name and password which will be used to access that folder. When a number of individuals need their own login details, there will not be a problem to create numerous different usernames with access to the same exact folder. All secured folders shall appear with a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you'll always know where this option is active. If you'd like to turn off the security feature for any folder, you can deactivate it from the very same section of the CP where you have enabled it.

You will not encounter any difficulties even if you haven't had a web hosting account before, due to the fact that you do not need any previous knowledge or computer programming skills to enable the feature. If you repeat the same basic steps, you will be able to set up different usernames for the exact same password-protected area, so a number of people will be able to access a given folder with their own login credentials. You'll be able to see the protected folders instantly either in precisely the same section of the CP or within the File Manager section where you shall detect them by their little padlock icons.
