A password-protected directory or area is a folder that could be accessed when a username and a password are provided, so no unauthorized individuals could see its content. This feature could be used for the main folder of a certain Internet site or just for a specific subfolder depending on your requirements. As an example, when you are developing a new site and you do not want people to see it before it is completely ready, you might want to prohibit the access to it completely, whereas if you need only some people to be able to access specific files, you are able to password-protect only a specific folder, while the other parts of the site could be seen by everybody. Regardless, a “403 Forbidden” error page shall appear if the login details the visitor enters are not accurate. Even a direct link to a file won't work given that any folder above it is password-protected.
