If you wish to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you are able to enable password protection for a particular folder - either the main site folder or another one below it. If this feature is turned on, a pop-up shall appear anytime somebody tries 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 if you have protected the domain.com folder. If the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no way to get around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody shall be able access the secured content. The function could be helpful in numerous scenarios - if only a few individuals must be able to see particular files, if you are developing a website and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, and so forth.
