If you would like keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can activate password protection for a particular folder - either the main website folder or another one below it. In case this option is enabled, a pop-up shall appear every time a person tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected only the domain.com folder. When the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no way to get around this restriction, so you can rest assured that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The feature can be helpful in a number of situations - if only a few people must be able to see specific files, if you are building an Internet site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, etc.
