If you'd like to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you can activate password protection for a particular folder - either the primary Internet site folder or a different one below it. Whenever this option is turned on, a pop-up shall appear anytime someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login details will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured the domain.com folder. When the details aren't 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 function may be beneficial in a number of situations - if only a number of individuals must be able to see specific files, if you are creating an Internet site and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, etc.
