Password Protected Directories
Discover how to make a protected and user-only area in your site with password-protected directories.
If you wish to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you are able to activate password protection for a particular folder - either the primary Internet site folder or any other one below it. If this function is enabled, a pop-up will appear each time anyone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected just the domain.com folder. When the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that nobody shall be able access the secured content. The function may be helpful in a variety of cases - if only a few individuals should be able to see specific files, if you are building a site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, etc.

Each secured folder will have a padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you'll be able to see instantly what content is protected and what's not.
