If you wish to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can enable password protection for a particular folder - either the main website folder or a different one below it. In case this feature is turned on, a pop-up shall appear each and every time 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 needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have protected just the domain.com folder. If the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no way to get around this restriction, so you can rest assured that no one will be able to access the protected content. The option may be useful in various scenarios - if only a number of people must be able to see particular files, if you are creating an Internet site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, etc.
