A password-protected directory or area is a folder that could be accessed when a username and a password are provided, so no unauthorized people could see its content. This option can be used for the main folder of a given website or only for a certain subfolder based on your preferences. As an illustration, when you are developing a new Internet site and you do not want people to see it prior to it being ready, you need to limit the access to it completely, and if you need only some individuals to be able to access certain files, you are able to password-protect only a specific folder, while the other parts of the website may be seen by anybody. Either way, a “403 Forbidden” error page will appear if the login details the visitor inputs aren't correct. Even a direct link to a file shall not work if any folder above it is password-protected.
