If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could switch on password protection for a given folder - either the main Internet site folder or a different one below it. In case this option is turned on, a pop-up will appear anytime someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have protected the domain.com folder. In case the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that nobody will be able to access the protected content. The function may be useful in numerous situations - if only a number of individuals must be able to see certain files, if you are building a site and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so forth.
