If you wish to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you could enable password protection for a certain folder - either the primary website folder or another one below it. In case this feature is active, a pop-up shall appear each 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 necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured just the domain.com folder. If the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any method of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The feature can be helpful in numerous scenarios - if only some individuals should be able to see certain files, if you work on a website and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, and so forth.
