A password-protected directory or area is a folder which may be accessed only when a username and a password are typed in, so no unauthorized people may view its content. This option could be used for the primary folder of a certain website or only for a particular subfolder based on the needs you have. As an example, when you are creating a new site and you do not want people to see it before it's 100% ready, you might want to limit the access to it as a whole, whereas if you want only some individuals to be able to access certain files, you may password-protect only a specific folder, while the remaining portion of the website may be seen by anybody. In any case, a “403 Forbidden” error page shall appear in the event that the login details the visitor types in are not right. Even a direct link to a file will not work provided any folder above it is password-protected.

You will simply have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the specific folder that should be secured (the main one or a subfolder), and then to input the desired username and password that'll be used to access the folder in question at some point. Each and every protected folder shall have padlock icon inside the File Manager section, so you shall be able to see immediately what content is protected and what's not. If required, you could make several different sets of login credentials for precisely the same folder.
