If you wish to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to activate password protection for a particular folder - either the primary Internet site folder or any other one below it. Whenever this function is turned on, a pop-up will appear each and every time anyone tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info will be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured just 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 rest assured that nobody shall be able access the shielded content. The feature can be helpful in a number of cases - if only a few individuals should be able to see particular files, if you work on a website and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, and so on.

The feature shall be active right away, so in case you try to open the folder/website, you shall be prompted to type in the login info.
