If you would like keep some content hidden from the public eye, you are able to activate password protection for a particular folder - either the main Internet site folder or a different one below it. If this feature is active, a pop-up will appear every time anyone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected just the domain.com folder. When the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any way to get around this restriction, so you can be sure that no one will be able to access the protected content. The function may be helpful in a variety of scenarios - if only some people should be able to see specific files, if you are developing an Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, and so forth.
