Password Protected Directories
What are password-protected directories? What do they mean for your web site?
If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you are able to switch on password protection for a certain folder - either the main site folder or any other one below it. In case this option is enabled, a pop-up will appear anytime someone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected only the domain.com folder. If the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any way of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that nobody will be able to access the shielded content. The function could be helpful in numerous scenarios - if only a number of people need to be able to see certain files, if you are building an Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, and so on.

You'll be able to see the secured folders easily either in the exact same section of the CP or inside the File Manager section where you shall identify them by their small padlock icons.
