If you'd like to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you are able to activate password protection for a certain folder - either the main Internet site folder or any other one below it. In case this feature is turned on, 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 details shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured just the domain.com folder. When the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any way of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that nobody will be able to access the shielded content. The feature may be helpful in various cases - if only a few individuals should be able to see certain files, if you are developing a site and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, and so forth.
