A password-protected directory or area is a folder which may be accessed when a username and a password are typed in, so no unauthorized people may see its content. This feature may be used for the primary folder of a given website or just for a specific subfolder in accordance with your needs. For example, if you are building a new Internet site and you do not want people to see it before it's completely ready, you might want to limit the access to it as a whole, while if you want only some people to be able to access certain files, you'll be able to password-protect only a specific folder, while the rest of the website can be seen by everyone. Either way, a “403 Forbidden” error page will appear in case the login details the visitor inputs aren't right. Even a direct link to a file shall not work given that any folder above it is password-protected.
