A password-protected directory or area is a folder which could be accessed only when a username and a password are typed in, so no unauthorized people could check out its content. This feature could be used for the primary folder of a particular website or just for a specific subfolder depending on the needs you have. For instance, if you are creating a new Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it is completely ready, you might want to limit the access to it altogether, whereas if you want only some individuals to be able to access certain files, you are able to password-protect only a particular folder, while the remainder of the website could be seen by anyone. Anyway, a “403 Forbidden” error page shall appear in case the login details the visitor enters are not accurate. Even a direct link to a file will not work if any folder above it is password-protected.
