A password-protected directory or area is a folder which could be accessed only when a username and a password are entered, so no unauthorized individuals can look at its content. This option may be used for the primary folder of a particular Internet site or just for a specific subfolder depending on your requirements. For instance, if you are creating a new site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being 100% ready, you need to limit the access to it as a whole, whereas if you would like only some people to be able to access certain files, you are able to password-protect only a certain folder, while the rest of the website may be seen by everyone. Anyway, a “403 Forbidden” error page shall appear in the event that the login details the visitor types in aren't correct. Even a direct link to a file shall not work so long as any folder above it is password-protected.
