A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the correct login details are provided. This could be an entire website or just one page which is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up where you must enter a username as well as a password. If you enter the right ones, you can continue exploring the content without the need to do anything more. If the login details aren't accurate, however, you shall see information that you aren't permitted to view the content. When this function is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The option is very handy if you want to prohibit the access to some content or if you are creating an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.

You shall not need to do anything complex - you will have to pick a domain/subdomain, to choose which folder under it has to be protected, and then to type the login name and password that'll be used to access that folder. If a number of people need their own login details, there won't be a problem to create a number of different usernames with access to the very same folder. All protected folders will appear with a padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you will always know where this function is activated. If you'd like to deactivate the security function for any folder, you can deactivate it from the same section of the Control Panel where you have enabled it.
