If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you'll be able to enable password protection for a certain folder - either the main Internet site folder or another one below it. If this function is activated, a pop-up will appear every time someone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected the domain.com folder. In case the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any way of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody will be able to access the protected content. The function could be useful in a variety of situations - if only a number of people need to be able to see specific files, if you work on a website and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, etc.
