A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the correct login details are offered. This can be an entire website or simply a single page that's located within a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up where you will need to type a username and a password. In case you input the correct ones, you will be able to continue surfing around the content without the need to do anything else. In case the login details aren't correct, however, you'll see a message that you aren't authorized to see the content. In case this feature is activated, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is extremely handy if you need to prohibit the access to some content or if you are creating an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

When you navigate to the Password Protection section, you'll have to pick one of the domains or subdomains which you have inside the account and then choose if the protection should be activated for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password that you want and you shall be ready. A little padlock symbol inside the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected.

The protection shall take effect at once, so if you make an effort to open the password-protected URL inside your browser, you'll have to type the newly created login credentials before you proceed. Additionally, you'll be able to give different usernames for the same folder to a number of individuals, so you'll not have to share the same login details with everybody. Any password-protected folder shall have a compact padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you'll be able to recognize this sort of folders easily.
