If you would like keep some content concealed from the public eye, you are able to switch on password protection for a given folder - either the main site folder or a different one below it. In case this option is activated, a pop-up will appear each and every time anyone tries 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 if you have secured only the domain.com folder. When the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no method of getting around this restriction, so you can be sure that no one shall be able access the secured content. The feature could be helpful in a number of scenarios - if only a few people must be able to see particular files, if you are developing a website and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, and so on.

You will simply have to choose the hostname (domain or subdomain), the exact folder that must be protected (the main folder or a subfolder) and the login name and password. The protection will take effect instantaneously, so if you attempt to open the password-protected URL inside your web browser, you will have to enter the newly created login details before you proceed. You will also be able to give different usernames for the same folder to a number of individuals, so you'll not have to share the same login details with everyone. Any password-protected folder shall have a compact padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you shall be able to recognize this kind of folders easily.
