If you would like keep some content concealed from the public eye, you are able to switch on password protection for a specific folder - either the main site folder or a different one below it. In case this function is enabled, a pop-up shall appear each time someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected only the domain.com folder. In case the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that nobody will be able to access the protected content. The feature may be beneficial in a variety of cases - if only a number of individuals must be able to see certain files, if you are building a website and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, etc.
