There are different ways you can define in .htaccess or via ssh.

Create a .htaccess file with following information

Code:
AuthName "Please login to secure folder"
AuthType Basic
AuthUserFile /path/to/your/folder/.htpasswd
require valid-user
Note that you should put .htpasswd in account folder outside of directories that can be accessed by your visitors

For example:
Code:
/path/to/your/yourdomain.com/.htpasswd
Ok now you will set up the password File, .htpasswd

in file, you type
Code:
usename1:password1
usename2:password2
You can send account with usenname1 and pasword1 to user 1 and same to user 2

finally chmod 644 for .htpasswd file

Hope it helps!

The password, shown above in the previous post, has to be encrypted. You can use the "htpasswd" command in Linux or find an online .htaccess password generator. Just search Google for ".htaccess Password Generator"
