Add a secured folder

If a folder is secured, the pages hosted in this folder ask for a password before they are opened.

Note! This option is not available in Windows hosting.

Follow these steps in the control panel to add a secured folder:

  1. Go to “My products” > “Web hosting” > Click on the button “Manage hosting” to the right of your domain name for which you want to protect a folder.
  2. Select “Security” in the menu on the left and then click on the “Secure folders” tab.
  3. Give this secure folder a name that is clear to you.
  4. Enter the path to the folder you want to protect and click on “Add folder” (see image).

Tip: Use FTP to find the correct path.
