If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you could activate password protection for a certain folder - either the main site folder or any other one below it. In case this feature is active, a pop-up will appear anytime a person attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured only the domain.com folder. In case the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one shall be able access the secured content. The function may be helpful in numerous scenarios - if only a few individuals need to be able to see particular files, if you work on a site and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, and so on.
