If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you are able to activate password protection for a specific folder - either the primary Internet site folder or another one below it. Whenever this feature is turned on, a pop-up shall appear each time somebody attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected the domain.com folder. When the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no way to get around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one will be able to access the secured content. The function may be helpful in a variety of situations - if only a number of people need to be able to see particular files, if you work on a site and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, etc.
