If you wish to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to enable password protection for a particular folder - either the primary Internet site folder or any other one below it. If this option is activated, a pop-up will appear anytime anyone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login info will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected just the domain.com folder. If the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no way to get around this restriction, so you can be sure that nobody will be able to access the shielded content. The option can be useful in various situations - if only some people should be able to see specific files, if you work on an Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, and so forth.
