If you would like keep some content hidden from the public eye, you can enable password protection for a specific folder - either the main Internet site folder or another one below it. When this function is turned on, a pop-up will appear every time someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected just the domain.com folder. When the details are not valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no method of getting around this restriction, so you can be sure that no one will be able to access the secured content. The option can be beneficial in numerous scenarios - if only certain people must be able to see specific files, if you work on a site and you do not want people to see it before it is completed, and so on.

After that you can enter the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be good to go. The protection will be enabled right away, so anybody who attempts to access the recently protected folder shall have to input the accurate login info. When a number of people have to be able to open exactly the same content, you could make a separate username for each.
