If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can enable password protection for a specific folder - either the primary site folder or a different one below it. In case this feature is enabled, a pop-up shall appear anytime anyone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login info will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured the domain.com folder. When the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no method of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The feature can be useful in a number of scenarios - if only some individuals should be able to see specific files, if you are building an Internet site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.
