A password-protected directory or area is a folder that can be accessed when a username and a password are entered, so no unauthorized people could observe its content. This function may be used for the main folder of a particular site or only for a certain subfolder in accordance with your preferences. For instance, when you are building a new site and you do not want people to see it before it's 100% ready, you might want to restrict the access to it altogether, and if you want only some people to be able to access specific files, you can password-protect only a certain folder, while the remainder of the Internet site could be seen by anyone. Regardless, a “403 Forbidden” error page shall appear in case the login details the visitor enters aren't accurate. Even a direct link to a file won't work so long as any folder above it is password-protected.
