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 individuals may check out its content. This function could be used for the primary folder of a specific site or exclusively for a specific subfolder depending on the needs you have. As an example, if you are creating a new website and you don't want people to see it prior to it being completely ready, you might want to prohibit the access to it as a whole, while if you need only some individuals to be able to access particular files, you'll be able to password-protect only a specific folder, while the other parts of the site may be seen by anyone. Regardless, a “403 Forbidden” error page shall appear in the event that the login details the visitor enters aren't accurate. Even a direct link to a file will not work if any folder above it is password-protected.
