If you'd like to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you'll be able to enable password protection for a specific folder - either the main Internet site folder or any other one below it. Whenever this feature is enabled, a pop-up shall appear anytime somebody tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected just the domain.com folder. If the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall 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 feature may be helpful in numerous cases - if only a few individuals must be able to see particular files, if you are building an Internet site and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, and so on.
