A password-protected directory or area is a folder which could be accessed only if a username and a password are typed in, so no unauthorized individuals could see its content. This option can be used for the main folder of a certain site or just for a specific subfolder based on your needs. For example, when you are building a new Internet site and you do not want people to see it before it's 100% ready, you need to restrict the access to it entirely, and if you would like only some individuals to be able to access specific files, you'll be able to password-protect only a specific folder, while the other parts of the Internet site can be seen by everyone. Either way, a “403 Forbidden” error page will appear when the login details the visitor inputs are not accurate. Even a direct link to a file won't work as long as any folder above it is password-protected.
