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 option can be used for the primary folder of a given site or exclusively for a certain subfolder based upon your needs. For example, if you are building a new website and you do not want people to see it before it's completely ready, you need to limit the access to it entirely, and if you would like only some individuals to be able to access particular files, you'll be able to password-protect only a specific folder, while the rest of the site may be seen by anyone. In any case, a “403 Forbidden” error page shall appear when the login details the visitor types in aren't right. Even a direct link to a file won't work if any folder above it is password-protected.
