A password-protected directory or area is a folder that may be accessed only when a username and a password are provided, so no unauthorized individuals could check out its content. This option may be used for the primary folder of a specific website or only for a particular subfolder in accordance with the needs you have. For example, when you are creating a new site and you don't want people to see it before it is completely ready, you need to restrict the access to it altogether, and if you need only some individuals to be able to access particular files, you can password-protect only a particular folder, while the remainder of the site could be seen by anyone. In any case, a “403 Forbidden” error page will appear in the event that the login details the visitor inputs are not correct. Even a direct link to a file won't work given that any folder above it is password-protected.
