If you'd like to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you are able to switch on password protection for a certain folder - either the primary Internet site folder or another one below it. In case this option is activated, a pop-up will appear anytime somebody attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured just the domain.com folder. When the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any way of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that nobody will be able to access the shielded content. The option may be useful in a variety of scenarios - if only certain people need to be able to see specific files, if you are developing an Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, and so on.
