If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you can activate password protection for a particular folder - either the primary website folder or a different one below it. If this feature is active, a pop-up will appear each and every time somebody tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have protected just the domain.com folder. When the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no way to get around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody will be able to access the shielded content. The function may be helpful in a number of cases - if only a number of people must be able to see specific files, if you work on a site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.
