If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you can enable password protection for a given folder - either the main website folder or a different one below it. Whenever this option is active, a pop-up will appear every time anyone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured just the domain.com folder. In case the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody shall be able access the shielded content. The option could be helpful in numerous scenarios - if only a number of people should be able to see particular files, if you are building a website and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so on.
