If you want to keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could enable password protection for a given folder - either the primary Internet site folder or a different one below it. If this option is turned on, a pop-up will appear every time someone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link that goes a few levels deeper, so login information will be required for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg when you have protected just the domain.com folder. In case the credentials 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 nobody will be able to access the protected content. The option may be beneficial in various situations - if only a few people need to be able to see specific files, if you work on an Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it's completed, and so forth.
