Password protect directories
You can protect directories within your site from browsers by using a password to protect them. This allows you to restrict material to only authorized users or store sensitive material online. This has the same appearance and effect as the password protection on CPanel.
To password protect a directory:
Click on the Password protect directories button on the home page.
Navigate to the directory that you want to protect. Select a folder by clicking on the folder name link, or open a folder by clicking on the folder icon.
Click on the tick box next to the icon.
Enter the name that you want to appear in the Protected Resource Name field. This is optional and purely for the user's benefit.
Click on the Save button. Generally, you now need to add at least one authorized user to enable access to the directory. Refer to Adding an authorized user for more information.
