If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you are able to enable password protection for a certain folder - either the primary site folder or a different one below it. Whenever this option is activated, a pop-up will appear anytime anyone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected the domain.com folder. In case the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one will be able to access the shielded content. The feature could be beneficial in numerous situations - if only a number of individuals need to be able to see specific files, if you are creating an Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, and so on.
