A password-protected directory or area is a folder which could be accessed when a username and a password are typed in, so no unauthorized people can see its content. This option may be used for the primary folder of a specific site or only for a specific subfolder in accordance with the needs you have. As an example, when you are creating a new site and you do not want people to see it before it's 100% ready, you should prohibit the access to it as a whole, and if you would like only some individuals to be able to access particular files, you'll be able to password-protect only a particular folder, while the remainder of the Internet site can be seen by everybody. Anyway, a “403 Forbidden” error page shall appear in the event that the login details the visitor types in aren't accurate. Even a direct link to a file will not work provided any folder above it is password-protected.
