If you would like keep some content hidden from the public eye, you can switch on password protection for a particular folder - either the primary website folder or a different one below it. When this feature is activated, a pop-up will appear anytime a person attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected just the domain.com folder. If the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no method of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that no one will be able to access the protected content. The feature could be useful in numerous cases - if only certain people need to be able to see particular files, if you are creating an Internet site and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, and so forth.
