If you'd like to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can activate password protection for a certain folder - either the primary website folder or any other one below it. If this function is active, a pop-up shall appear each time someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have protected just the domain.com folder. If the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody will be able to access the shielded content. The feature could be beneficial in a variety of situations - if only some individuals should be able to see particular files, if you are developing a website and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so forth.
