A password-protected directory or area is a folder which could be accessed when a username and a password are typed in, so no unauthorized people can observe its content. This function may be used for the primary folder of a specific Internet site or exclusively for a certain subfolder in accordance with the needs you have. As an example, if you are building a new site and you do not want people to see it before it is 100% ready, you may want to restrict the access to it as a whole, while if you would like only some people to be able to access particular files, you'll be able to password-protect only a certain folder, while the remaining portion of the site can be seen by anybody. Either way, a “403 Forbidden” error page will appear in the event that the login details the visitor inputs aren't correct. Even a direct link to a file won't work as long as any folder above it is password-protected.
