If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you'll be able to activate password protection for a given folder - either the main site folder or another one below it. In case this feature is active, a pop-up shall appear each and every time somebody attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login details will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected just the domain.com folder. In case the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any method of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The option could be helpful in numerous scenarios - if only a number of individuals need to be able to see certain files, if you are creating an Internet site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so on.
