If you would like keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could switch on password protection for a specific folder - either the main website folder or a different one below it. In case this function is active, a pop-up will appear every time anyone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login details will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured only the domain.com folder. When the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no way to get around this restriction, so you can rest assured that no one will be able to access the shielded content. The option can be beneficial in a variety of situations - if only a number of individuals need to be able to see specific files, if you work on a site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so on.
