If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you are able to switch on password protection for a particular folder - either the main website folder or a different one below it. When this feature is enabled, a pop-up will appear each time a person attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected the domain.com folder. In case the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no method of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody shall be able access the secured content. The option could be beneficial in numerous cases - if only some individuals should be able to see specific files, if you are building an Internet site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so on.
