If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you are able to switch on password protection for a given folder - either the primary website folder or another one below it. Whenever this option is active, a pop-up will appear every time anyone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured only the domain.com folder. If the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no method of getting around this restriction, so you can be sure that no one will be able to access the secured content. The feature may be useful in various cases - if only a few individuals must be able to see certain files, if you are developing an Internet site and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, etc.
