If you would like keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could activate password protection for a certain folder - either the primary website folder or a different one below it. If this function is activated, a pop-up will appear each time somebody attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have protected just the domain.com folder. In case the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one will be able to access the shielded content. The function may be beneficial in numerous cases - if only a few people need to be able to see certain files, if you are developing a site and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, etc.
