If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you'll be able to activate password protection for a given folder - either the primary website folder or any other one below it. In case this option is activated, a pop-up will appear every time a person tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login details shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have protected just the domain.com folder. If the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no way of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that no one will be able to access the shielded content. The feature could be helpful in a variety of cases - if only some people should be able to see specific files, if you work on a site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.
