Password protect a directory in Cpanel:

Sometimes, you may find it best practice to password protect a folder on your account. This can add an extra layer of protection to files you do not want the general public to have access to. Password protecting a directory can be easily accomplished using the option within cPanel.

For protecting a directory with a password in cpanel go to,

cPanel->Security->Password Protect Directories

Here you can see the list of directories on your hosting account. Just click on the name of the directory you need to set password and then create an account that has access privileges to that directory once it has been password protected. Once you have created an account, simply check the box next to “Password Protect This Directory” and save your settings. Password protecting directories is recursive, meaning that once a directory is password protected all sub-directories in it will also be locked.
