If you'd like to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you'll be able to activate password protection for a given folder - either the primary site folder or a different one below it. When this function is activated, a pop-up shall appear every time someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured the domain.com folder. In case the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no method of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that nobody shall be able access the shielded content. The function could be useful in a number of situations - if only a few people should be able to see particular files, if you are building a site and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, and so on.

As the tool is an element of our innovative Hepsia CP, it provides exactly the same simple interface and you will not need any special skills to use it. As soon as you check out the Password Protection section, you'll have to choose one of the domains or subdomains you have inside the account and then decide whether the protection should be active for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then type in the username and the password that you would like and you'll be set. A small padlock symbol within the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the very same way you will be able to include multiple usernames and passwords for the same folder if you want several people to have their own login credentials.

By following precisely the same steps, you can create many different login credentials for the very same folder to give several people their own username/password.
