If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to switch on password protection for a specific folder - either the primary Internet site folder or another one below it. If this function is enabled, a pop-up will appear every time someone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured the domain.com folder. In case the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no way of getting 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 situations - if only some individuals must be able to see certain files, if you are building a site and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so on.
