If you wish to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you are able to activate password protection for a certain folder - either the primary website folder or another one below it. When this option is turned on, a pop-up shall appear anytime somebody attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected the domain.com folder. When the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any method of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody will be able to access the protected content. The feature can be useful in a variety of cases - if only a few 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 on.
