A password-protected directory or area is a folder which can be accessed only when a username and a password are provided, so no unauthorized individuals could see its content. This feature could be used for the primary folder of a certain website or just for a particular subfolder based upon your needs. As an example, when you are creating a new Internet site and you do not want people to see it before it's ready, you may want to restrict the access to it altogether, and if you want only some people to be able to access particular files, you are able to password-protect only a specific folder, while the remaining portion of the website can be seen by anyone. Anyway, a “403 Forbidden” error page shall appear if the login details the visitor enters aren't accurate. Even a direct link to a file will not work provided any folder above it is password-protected.
