If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can enable password protection for a particular folder - either the primary website folder or another one below it. If this feature is active, a pop-up shall appear each time someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured the domain.com folder. In case the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody shall be able access the secured content. The feature could be useful in numerous situations - if only a few people must be able to see specific files, if you are developing a website and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so on.
Password Protected Directories in Web Hosting
Creating a password-protected area will take only several clicks and a few seconds if you host your Internet sites inside a web hosting account with us. You won't have to do anything complicated - you will have to pick a domain/subdomain, to choose which folder under it must be protected, and then to input the login name and password which will be used to access that folder. If a number of people require their own login credentials, there shall not be a problem to create a number of different usernames with access to the very same folder. All secured folders will appear with a padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you shall always know where this option is activated. If you want to deactivate the protection function for any folder, you can disable it from the same exact section of the CP in which you have enabled it.

Protecting any folder with a password will be very easy if you host your sites inside a semi-dedicated server account with our company.

You will not experience any issues even if you have never had a hosting account before, since you do not need any previous knowledge or computer programming skills to enable the function. If you repeat the same very simple steps, you'll be able to set up many usernames for the very same password-protected area, so a number of people will be able to access a certain folder with their own login details. You will be able to see the secured folders at a glance either in exactly the same section of the CP or within the File Manager section where you shall recognize them by their little padlock icons.
