Password Protected Directories
Discover how to create a protected and user-only area in your website with password-protected directories.
If you would like keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can enable password protection for a certain folder - either the main site folder or another one below it. Whenever this feature is active, a pop-up will appear every time a person attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected only the domain.com folder. In case the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no method of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one will be able to access the protected content. The function may be helpful in a variety of situations - if only certain individuals must be able to see certain files, if you are building a website and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, and so on.
