If you'd like to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you are able to switch on password protection for a given folder - either the main site folder or a different one below it. In case this function is turned on, a pop-up will appear anytime someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login details will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have protected only the domain.com folder. In case the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any method of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody shall be able access the protected content. The function may be helpful in a number of situations - if only some individuals must be able to see particular files, if you are building an Internet site and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so forth.

When you check out the Password Protection section, you will need to choose one of the domains or subdomains that you have within the account and then decide whether the protection should be turned on for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password that you want and you'll be all set. A tiny padlock icon in the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the same way you shall be able to include a number of usernames and passwords for the same folder if you'd like several people to have their own login credentials.
