If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you are able to enable password protection for a particular folder - either the primary website folder or any other one below it. Whenever this function is enabled, a pop-up will appear anytime somebody attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected only the domain.com folder. In case the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any way of getting around this restriction, so you can be sure that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The function may be beneficial in numerous situations - if only a number of individuals must be able to see specific files, if you are developing a site and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, etc.
