Password Protected Directories
What are password-protected directories? What do they imply for your web site?
If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you are able to activate password protection for a specific folder - either the primary website folder or any other one below it. Whenever this option is activated, a pop-up shall appear every time somebody attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured only the domain.com folder. If the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there isn't any method of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that no one shall be able access the protected content. The feature may be beneficial in a variety of cases - if only certain individuals must be able to see specific files, if you are creating a website and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so forth.
