If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could switch on password protection for a given folder - either the primary website folder or another one below it. In case this function is activated, a pop-up will appear anytime anyone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have protected only the domain.com folder. In case the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any way to get around this restriction, so you can be sure that no one will be able to access the protected content. The option may be beneficial in a number of cases - if only a number of people should be able to see certain files, if you are building a website and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so on.
