If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you'll be able to enable password protection for a certain folder - either the primary website folder or any other one below it. Whenever this feature is active, 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 necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected only the domain.com folder. In case the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no method of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one will be able to access the protected content. The function may be beneficial in numerous situations - if only a number of individuals need to be able to see specific files, if you are building an Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, and so forth.
