If this function is turned on, a pop-up shall appear each time someone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected the domain.com folder. If the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any method of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that no one shall be able access the secured content. The option can be beneficial in a number of cases - if only certain people need to be able to see specific files, if you are creating a website and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.

Once you navigate to the Password Protection section, you will need to select one of the domains or subdomains you have in the account and then decide if the protection should be switched on for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type the username and the password that you would like and you will be all set to go. A tiny padlock icon in the File Manager section will tell you that a certain folder is password-protected. In the same way you shall be able to include many usernames and passwords for the same folder if you want several people to have their own login credentials.

You'll simply have to pick one of the domains/subdomains which you have inside the hosting account and to select which folder needs to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. After that you can enter the username and the password, that will be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be ready. The protection shall be activated instantly, so anyone who tries to access the freshly secured folder will have to input the right login information. When a number of individuals should be able to access exactly the same content, you can create a separate username for each of them.
