If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you are able to activate password protection for a given folder - either the main website folder or any other one below it. In case this function is activated, a pop-up shall appear every time anyone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected just the domain.com folder. When the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any method of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that nobody shall be able access the shielded content. The feature may be useful in a variety of situations - if only certain people need to be able to see certain files, if you work on a website and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so forth.
