If you wish to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you are able to enable password protection for a certain folder - either the main site folder or a different one below it. If this feature is activated, a pop-up shall appear each time somebody tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login info will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected just the domain.com folder. When 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 certain that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The option can be beneficial in numerous scenarios - if only a number of people need to be able to see particular files, if you are building a site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so on.
