If you would like keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can enable password protection for a certain folder - either the main website folder or another one below it. Whenever this function is activated, a pop-up will appear each and every time a person tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured just the domain.com folder. If the credentials 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 no one shall be able access the protected content. The option could be useful in a variety of situations - if only certain individuals need to be able to see particular files, if you are developing a website and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so on.
