A password-protected directory or area is a folder which can be accessed only when a username and a password are typed in, so no unauthorized people may observe its content. This feature can be used for the primary folder of a certain Internet site or exclusively for a particular subfolder depending on the needs you have. As an example, when you are creating a new website and you do not want people to see it before it's 100% ready, you may want to prohibit the access to it completely, and if you need only some people to be able to access particular files, you may password-protect only a particular folder, while the other parts of the site can be seen by everyone. Regardless, a “403 Forbidden” error page shall appear if the login details the visitor enters are not accurate. Even a direct link to a file will not work if any folder above it is password-protected.
