If you'd like to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to activate password protection for a particular folder - either the primary website folder or a different one below it. When this function is active, a pop-up will appear anytime someone tries 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 in case you have protected the domain.com folder. When 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 positive that nobody will be able to access the shielded content. The function may be beneficial in numerous situations - if only a number of people must be able to see certain files, if you are developing a website and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.
