If you'd like to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could activate password protection for a specific folder - either the primary website folder or any other one below it. If this function is active, a pop-up will appear anytime anyone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured only the domain.com folder. In case the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that no one will be able to access the shielded content. The option could be helpful in a number of scenarios - if only some individuals must be able to see specific files, if you are developing an Internet site and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, etc.
