If you would like keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to switch on password protection for a specific folder - either the primary website folder or a different one below it. In case this option is enabled, a pop-up will appear anytime anyone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have protected just the domain.com folder. In case the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no way to get around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one will be able to access the shielded content. The function could be helpful in various situations - if only certain individuals should be able to see particular files, if you are building an Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, and so forth.
