If you'd like to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could activate password protection for a particular folder - either the primary website folder or a different one below it. If this option is activated, a pop-up will appear anytime someone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured just the domain.com folder. If the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any way to get around this restriction, so you can be certain that no one will be able to access the protected content. The feature could be helpful in a variety of cases - if only some individuals should be able to see certain files, if you work on an Internet site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so on.
