If you would like keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could activate password protection for a particular folder - either the main site folder or any other one below it. Whenever this option is activated, a pop-up shall appear each and every time somebody 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. When the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no method of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that nobody will be able to access the shielded content. The function could be beneficial in numerous situations - if only some people need to be able to see certain files, if you are building a website and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, and so on.
