If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could switch on password protection for a given folder - either the primary Internet site folder or another one below it. In case this feature is active, a pop-up will appear each time someone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured just the domain.com folder. In case the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no way of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that nobody shall be able access the secured content. The option could be helpful in numerous situations - if only a number of individuals must be able to see certain files, if you are building an Internet site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, etc.
