A password-protected directory or area is a folder that can be accessed only if a username and a password are provided, so no unauthorized people may observe its content. This feature can be used for the main folder of a specific Internet site or only for a specific subfolder in accordance with your needs. For example, when you are building a new site and you don't want people to see it before it is completely ready, you need to prohibit the access to it altogether, while if you need only some individuals to be able to access specific files, you could password-protect only a specific folder, while the remaining portion of the site may be seen by everyone. Either way, a “403 Forbidden” error page will appear when the login details the visitor enters are not right. Even a direct link to a file won't work if any folder above it is password-protected.

You will only have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the particular folder which must be protected (the main one or a subfolder), and then to type the preferred username and password that'll be used to access the folder in question in the future. Each and every secured folder will have a padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see easily what content is secured and what is not.
