If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could activate password protection for a specific folder - either the main website folder or any other one below it. If this feature is activated, a pop-up will appear each and every time somebody tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login details will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured only the domain.com folder. When the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no method of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The option can be helpful in numerous situations - if only certain individuals need to be able to see certain files, if you are developing an Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, and so on.
