A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the proper login details are offered. This can be a whole website or simply a single page that's situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up where you must enter a username and a password. If you input the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content without having to do anything extra. In case the login credentials are not right, however, you'll see a message that you are not permitted to view the content. In case this feature is activated, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is extremely useful if you need to restrict the access to some content or if you work on a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

When you check out the Password Protection section, you'll need to select one of the domains or subdomains you have in the account and then choose whether the protection should be turned on for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then type in the username and the password that you'd like and you'll be all set. A little padlock symbol within the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the same exact way you will be able to add numerous usernames and passwords for the same folder if you would like several people to have their own login credentials.
