If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to switch on password protection for a specific folder - either the main site folder or any other one below it. Whenever 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 which goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured only the domain.com folder. When the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one will be able to access the protected content. The option can be useful in a variety of situations - if only a few individuals should be able to see certain files, if you are creating an Internet site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.
