A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the right login details are provided. This could be an entire site or simply a single page that is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you'll see a web browser pop-up where you will have to input a username as well as a password. If you enter the right ones, you can continue surfing around the content without having to do anything more. If the login details are not accurate, however, you'll see information that you are not permitted to look at the content. If this function is activated, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is very effective if you wish to prohibit the access to some content or if you are creating a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

You will have to select a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder which should be secured (the main one or a subfolder), and then to type in the username and password that will be used to access the folder in question in the future. Any protected folder shall have padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see at a glance what content is protected and what is not. If necessary, you may create a number of different sets of login credentials for the exact same folder.
