If you would like keep some content hidden from the public eye, you can activate password protection for a certain folder - either the main Internet site folder or a different one below it. If this option is turned on, a pop-up shall appear every time someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured the domain.com folder. In case the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no way of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that no one will be able to access the protected content. The function may be beneficial in various scenarios - if only certain individuals must be able to see specific files, if you are creating a site and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, and so on.
