If you'd like to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you can activate password protection for a certain folder - either the main website folder or any other one below it. In case this option is active, a pop-up will appear anytime a person attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured only the domain.com folder. In case the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be sure that no one will be able to access the protected content. The option may be useful in a variety of situations - if only a number of people need to be able to see particular files, if you are creating an Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, etc.

Once you navigate to the Password Protection section, you'll have to select one of the domains or subdomains which you have in the account and then choose whether the protection should be turned on for the primary folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password that you want and you'll be set. A tiny padlock symbol inside the File Manager section will tell you that a particular folder is password-protected.
