If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could activate password protection for a particular folder - either the primary site folder or another one below it. If this option is enabled, a pop-up will appear each time someone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected only the domain.com folder. If the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there's no way of getting around this restriction, so you can be certain that no one shall be able access the shielded content. The option may be helpful in numerous scenarios - if only some people need to be able to see specific files, if you are developing a site and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, and so on.
