If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could switch on password protection for a certain folder - either the primary website folder or another one below it. When this feature is enabled, a pop-up will appear every time 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 if you have secured just the domain.com folder. If the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will 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 option can be useful in a number of cases - if only a few individuals need to be able to see specific files, if you are developing a site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, etc.
