If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you could enable password protection for a certain folder - either the primary Internet site folder or another one below it. In case this option is turned on, a pop-up shall 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 will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured just the domain.com folder. If the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no way to get around this restriction, so you can be sure that no one shall be able access the shielded content. The feature can be beneficial in a number of situations - if only certain individuals should be able to see specific files, if you are creating a website and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.
