If you'd like to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you could activate password protection for a given folder - either the main site folder or any other one below it. Whenever this function is activated, a pop-up will appear anytime somebody tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured just the domain.com folder. When the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any method of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that no one will be able to access the protected content. The option can be beneficial in a variety of cases - if only a few people should be able to see certain files, if you are creating an Internet site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so on.
