If you would like keep some content concealed from the public eye, you could switch on password protection for a given folder - either the main site folder or another one below it. When this feature is enabled, a pop-up will appear each time anyone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected the domain.com folder. If the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no method of getting around this restriction, so you can be sure that no one will be able to access the secured content. The option may be beneficial in a variety of scenarios - if only a number of individuals should be able to see specific files, if you work on a website and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.
