Password Protected Directories
What are password-protected directories? What do they signify for your web site?
If you'd like to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you are able to activate password protection for a certain folder - either the primary Internet site folder or any other one below it. If this option is turned on, a pop-up shall appear anytime somebody tries to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be necessary for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have secured the domain.com folder. When the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message will appear and there is no way to get around this restriction, so you can rest assured that no one will be able to access the protected content. The option may be helpful in numerous scenarios - if only a few people need to 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.
