If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you can switch on password protection for a certain folder - either the primary Internet site folder or another one below it. When this function is active, a pop-up will appear anytime a person tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login info will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured just the domain.com folder. In case the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one will be able to access the shielded content. The function may be helpful in a number of scenarios - if only a number of individuals need to be able to see particular files, if you are creating a website and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so on.

You'll simply have to select a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder that must be protected (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to type in the preferred username and password that'll be used to access the folder in question in the future. Each secured folder will have a padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you will be able to see easily what content is secured and what is not. If necessary, you can create a number of sets of login credentials for precisely the same folder.
