If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could switch on password protection for a particular folder - either the primary website folder or any other one below it. If this function is active, a pop-up shall appear each and every time someone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected the domain.com folder. When the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no way to get around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The feature may be beneficial in numerous scenarios - if only a number of people need to be able to see particular files, if you are building a site and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, and so on.
