If you would like keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to activate password protection for a particular folder - either the main website folder or a different one below it. If this option is turned on, a pop-up will appear each and every time anyone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured the domain.com folder. In case the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there is no way to get around this restriction, so you can be certain that no one will be able to access the shielded content. The feature could be helpful in various situations - if only a number of individuals must be able to see particular files, if you are developing a website and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so forth.
