If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you are able to enable password protection for a specific folder - either the primary website folder or any other one below it. When this option is enabled, a pop-up will appear each and every time someone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login details will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured just the domain.com folder. In case the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any way to get around this restriction, so you can be sure that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The function may be useful in a variety of situations - if only certain individuals need to be able to see particular files, if you are creating a website and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, and so forth.
