A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the correct login credentials are offered. This can be a whole site or only one page that's situated in a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up in which you have to type in a username as well as a password. In case you type in the correct ones, you can continue surfing around the content without the need to do anything additional. When the login credentials aren't right, however, you shall see a message that you aren't authorized to look at the content. If this function is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is very effective if you need to prohibit the access to some content or if you are creating a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

Once you visit the Password Protection section, you will have to choose one of the domains or subdomains that you have in the account and then decide if the protection should be active for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password you want and you shall be set. A tiny padlock icon within the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected. In the same way you will be able to add multiple usernames and passwords for the same folder if you'd like several people to have their own login credentials.
