If you would like keep some content concealed from the public eye, you could switch on password protection for a certain folder - either the main website folder or a different one below it. In case this feature is activated, a pop-up will appear each time anyone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured only the domain.com folder. If the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no method of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The feature could be beneficial in various cases - if only a number of individuals need to be able to see particular files, if you are creating an Internet site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.
