A password-protected directory or area is a folder that could be accessed when a username and a password are entered, so no unauthorized individuals may view its content. This function could be used for the primary folder of a particular website or just for a specific subfolder based upon the needs you have. For instance, when you are creating a new Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it's 100% ready, you might want to prohibit the access to it as a whole, whereas if you need only some people to be able to access certain files, you could password-protect only a certain folder, while the other parts of the website could be seen by everybody. Anyway, a “403 Forbidden” error page will appear when the login details the visitor enters aren't right. Even a direct link to a file will not work provided any folder above it is password-protected.
