A password-protected directory or area is a folder that can be accessed only if a username and a password are typed in, so no unauthorized individuals may view its content. This function may be used for the main folder of a particular Internet site or only for a specific subfolder based upon your needs. For example, when you are creating a new site and you don't want people to see it before it is 100% ready, you have to limit the access to it completely, while if you would like only some people to be able to access particular files, you can password-protect only a particular folder, while the rest of the site can be seen by anybody. In any case, 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 will not work provided any folder above it is password-protected.
