If you would like keep some content hidden from the public eye, you'll be able to activate password protection for a specific folder - either the primary Internet site folder or a different one below it. In case this function is enabled, a pop-up shall appear every time anyone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured only the domain.com folder. If the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any way to get around this restriction, so you can be certain that no one will be able to access the secured content. The function may be helpful in various scenarios - if only some people should be able to see certain files, if you are developing an Internet site and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, etc.
