Password Protected Directories
What are password-protected directories? What do they mean for your web site?
If you wish to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could enable password protection for a specific folder - either the main site folder or any other one below it. Whenever this function is activated, a pop-up will appear anytime anyone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login details will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured the domain.com folder. In case the credentials are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no way to get around this restriction, so you can be certain that nobody shall be able access the shielded content. The feature could be helpful in a variety of scenarios - if only certain individuals should be able to see particular files, if you are creating an Internet site and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, etc.
