If you would like keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can activate password protection for a specific folder - either the primary website folder or a different one below it. When this feature is enabled, a pop-up shall appear each and every time a person attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured the domain.com folder. When the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be sure that no one shall be able access the protected content. The function could be helpful in various situations - if only a few people must be able to see particular files, if you are creating an Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, and so forth.
