If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could enable password protection for a given folder - either the main Internet site folder or another one below it. In case this feature is activated, a pop-up shall appear every time somebody 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 when you have secured only the domain.com folder. In case the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no way to get around this restriction, so you can be positive that nobody will be able to access the protected content. The feature may be useful in numerous situations - if only a few people must be able to see particular files, if you are creating a site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, etc.

Password Protected Directories in Shared Web Hosting

Setting up a password-protected area will take just a couple of clicks and a few seconds if you host your sites inside a shared web hosting account with us. You will not have to do anything complex - you will have to select a domain/subdomain, to select which folder under it has to be protected, and then to enter the login name and password that'll be used to access that folder. When a number of individuals require their own login details, there won't be a problem to set up a number of different usernames with access to the same folder. All protected folders will appear with a padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you shall always know where this feature is active. If you'd like to deactivate the security feature for any folder, you can deactivate it from the very same section of the Control Panel where you have enabled it.
