A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the proper login details are provided. This could be an entire Internet site or just one page which is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up in which you must type a username and a password. If you type in the correct ones, you can continue browsing the content without needing to do anything additional. If the login credentials are not correct, however, you shall see a message that you are not allowed to see the content. In case this function is activated, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is incredibly practical if you'd like to prohibit the access to some content or if you are creating a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

As soon as you visit the Password Protection section, you will need to pick one of the domains or subdomains which you have within the account and then choose whether the protection should be switched on for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password you want and you'll be set. A little padlock icon in the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the exact same way you shall be able to include several usernames and passwords for the same folder if you want several people to have their own login credentials.
