If you would like keep some content hidden from the public eye, you can activate password protection for a particular folder - either the main Internet site folder or a different one below it. In case this option is activated, a pop-up shall appear each and every time someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured only the domain.com folder. If the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no method of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that no one will be able to access the protected content. The feature could be useful in various cases - if only some individuals should be able to see specific files, if you work on a website and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, etc.
