If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you are able to enable password protection for a certain folder - either the main Internet site folder or a different one below it. Whenever this feature is turned on, a pop-up shall 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 details will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have protected the domain.com folder. If the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no way to get around this restriction, so you can be certain that no one will be able to access the secured content. The function can be beneficial in a variety of scenarios - if only some people should be able to see particular files, if you are creating a website and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, and so forth.
