A password-protected directory or area is a folder that could be accessed only when a username and a password are entered, so no unauthorized individuals may check out its content. This feature may be used for the primary folder of a specific Internet site or only for a specific subfolder based on your needs. For instance, if you are developing a new site and you don't want people to see it before it is ready, you may want to restrict the access to it completely, whereas if you want only some people to be able to access specific files, you'll be able to password-protect only a specific folder, while the remainder of the website may be seen by everybody. Anyway, a “403 Forbidden” error page shall appear if the login details the visitor inputs aren't right. Even a direct link to a file will not work so long as any folder above it is password-protected.
