If you would like keep some content concealed from the public eye, you could switch on password protection for a specific folder - either the primary Internet site folder or a different one below it. Whenever this option is enabled, a pop-up will appear each time a person attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login info will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured the domain.com folder. In case the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no method of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that no one will be able to access the secured content. The option may be beneficial in numerous situations - if only a number of people must be able to see specific files, if you are building an Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, and so forth.
