If you would like keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could activate password protection for a certain folder - either the main website folder or any other one below it. Whenever this option is enabled, a pop-up will appear each time someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information shall be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg in case you have protected the domain.com folder. If the credentials aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there's no method of getting around this restriction, so you can rest assured that nobody shall be able access the protected content. The option may be helpful in various scenarios - if only certain individuals must be able to see certain files, if you are creating a website and you do not want people to see it before it's completed, and so forth.
