If you'd like to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you'll be able to switch on password protection for a specific folder - either the main Internet site folder or any other one below it. Whenever this option is activated, a pop-up will appear each and every time a person 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 if you have secured only the domain.com folder. When the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The feature can be beneficial in various cases - if only certain individuals need to be able to see particular files, if you are building a website and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, and so on.
