Password Protected Directories
What are password-protected directories? What do they signify for your website?
If you want to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to activate password protection for a given folder - either the primary site folder or a different one below it. When this option is active, a pop-up shall appear each and every time anyone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured only the domain.com folder. In case the credentials 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 will be able to access the shielded content. The feature could be beneficial in various situations - if only a few people should be able to see specific files, if you work on an Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it is completed, etc.
