If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could activate password protection for a certain folder - either the primary Internet site folder or another one below it. When this option is activated, a pop-up shall appear each time someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have secured only the domain.com folder. In case the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no way to get around this restriction, so you can be sure that no one shall be able access the protected content. The option can be helpful in numerous scenarios - if only some people need to be able to see particular files, if you work on a website and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, and so on.
