A password-protected directory or area is a folder that may be accessed only when a username and a password are typed in, so no unauthorized people can observe its content. This feature can be used for the primary folder of a certain site or only for a specific subfolder depending on the needs you have. As an illustration, if you are building a new Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it is completely ready, you may want to prohibit the access to it as a whole, and if you want only some people to be able to access particular files, you'll be able to password-protect only a specific folder, while the other parts of the Internet site can be seen by anybody. Either way, a “403 Forbidden” error page shall appear in case the login details the visitor inputs aren't accurate. Even a direct link to a file shall not work if any folder above it is password-protected.
