A password-protected directory or area is a folder which may be accessed when a username and a password are provided, so no unauthorized individuals can see its content. This feature may be used for the primary folder of a certain website or exclusively for a specific subfolder based on your requirements. As an example, when you are creating a new Internet site and you do not want people to see it before it's completely ready, you might want to prohibit the access to it altogether, while if you want only some individuals to be able to access particular files, you are able to password-protect only a specific folder, while the rest of the Internet site may be seen by anybody. Regardless, a “403 Forbidden” error page will appear in case the login details the visitor enters are not right. Even a direct link to a file shall not work if any folder above it is password-protected.
