A password-protected directory or area is a folder which can be accessed when a username and a password are typed in, so no unauthorized individuals can check out its content. This function could be used for the main folder of a given site or only for a certain subfolder in accordance with your needs. For example, if you are creating a new Internet site and you do not want people to see it before it's completely ready, you should limit the access to it completely, whereas if you would like only some individuals to be able to access specific files, you can password-protect only a certain folder, while the remaining portion of the website may be seen by anybody. In any case, a “403 Forbidden” error page will appear if the login details the visitor enters aren't right. Even a direct link to a file shall not work given that any folder above it is password-protected.
