A password-protected directory or area is a folder which can be accessed when a username and a password are typed in, so no unauthorized individuals could look at its content. This option can be used for the primary folder of a particular Internet site or just for a certain subfolder based upon the needs you have. As an illustration, if you are creating a new Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it's 100% ready, you may want to restrict the access to it as a whole, and if you want only some individuals to be able to access certain files, you could password-protect only a certain folder, while the other parts of the site may be seen by anybody. Regardless, a “403 Forbidden” error page will appear if the login details the visitor inputs aren't accurate. Even a direct link to a file won't work given that any folder above it is password-protected.
