If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you are able to activate password protection for a particular folder - either the main site folder or a different one below it. In case this function 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 that goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured the domain.com folder. When the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no method of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that nobody shall be able access the protected content. The function can be helpful in various situations - if only some individuals must be able to see specific files, if you are developing a website and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, and so on.
