If you would like keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could activate password protection for a given folder - either the main website folder or a different one below it. In case this function is turned on, a pop-up shall appear each time anyone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login details will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected only the domain.com folder. If the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any way of getting around this restriction, so you can be sure that no one will be able to access the secured content. The function may be helpful in various situations - if only a few individuals need to be able to see particular files, if you are developing an Internet site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, etc.
