Learn how to create a protected and user-only area in your site with password-protected directories.
If you wish to keep some content concealed from the public eye, you'll be able to enable password protection for a particular folder - either the main Internet site folder or any other one below it. Whenever this feature is enabled, a pop-up shall appear anytime a person tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured the domain.com folder. In case the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any way to get around this restriction, so you can rest assured that no one shall be able access the shielded content. The function may be useful in a variety of cases - if only some people 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.
