If you'd like to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you are able to switch on password protection for a specific folder - either the main website folder or another one below it. Whenever this function is active, a pop-up shall appear each and every time a person attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login info will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected just the domain.com folder. If the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no way to get around this restriction, so you can be positive that nobody shall be able access the protected content. The option can be helpful in numerous scenarios - if only certain people should be able to see certain files, if you are building a site and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so forth.
