Godaddy windows shared hosting on IIS6, but will probably migrate to IIS7 soon.

Is there easy way to setup folder with password protection, so when I try to access secure folder, login dialog pops up?

  • is this question for this stackexchange or should it be moved to "Web Applications"? – Andrija Oct 8 '10 at 13:34

Does this answer your question? http://help.godaddy.com/article/3977

It requires you to enter your Godaddy hosting username and password to access the directory as a result, so I'm not sure if that's what you want (you did not mention giving access to other users - if it's only for you then this probably works fine, but obviously not if anyone else needs to access it.)

The only way I have done something similar was to add a sub domain, and then create an ftp account to that domain. So when you go to example.com/foldername it asks for your credentials. Probably not what you were looking for....
