If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you can switch on password protection for a certain folder - either the main site folder or a different one below it. Whenever this feature is turned on, a pop-up shall appear anytime anyone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured just the domain.com folder. If the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no method of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that nobody shall be able access the secured content. The feature could be useful in various situations - if only a number of individuals need to be able to see certain files, if you are building an Internet site and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, etc.

You will only need to select the hostname (domain or subdomain), the specific folder that must be protected (the main folder or a subfolder) and the login name and password. The protection will take effect at once, so if you attempt to open the password-protected URL in your web browser, you'll have to type in the newly created login details before you can proceed. You will also be able to give different usernames for the very same folder to a number of people, so you will not need to share the same login credentials with everybody. Any password-protected folder shall have a tiny padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you shall be able to recognize this type of folders easily.
