If you wish to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to enable password protection for a specific folder - either the primary Internet site folder or another one below it. Whenever this feature is activated, a pop-up will appear each and every time a person attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected only the domain.com folder. In case the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any method of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that nobody shall be able access the secured content. The function can be beneficial in various cases - if only some people must be able to see particular files, if you are creating an Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, etc.

You will only have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the exact folder which should be secured (the primary one or a subfolder), and then to type the preferred username and password which will be used to access the folder in question when you need it. Each and every secured folder will have a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see at a glance what content is secured and what is not. If necessary, you can make a number of different sets of login details for precisely the same folder.
