A password-protected directory or area is a folder that could be accessed only if a username and a password are entered, so no unauthorized people can observe its content. This option can be used for the primary folder of a given site or exclusively for a particular subfolder in accordance with your requirements. For example, when you are creating a new site and you do not want people to see it before it's ready, you might want to limit the access to it altogether, whereas if you would like only some people to be able to access particular files, you may password-protect only a particular folder, while the remaining portion of the Internet site may be seen by everybody. Regardless, a “403 Forbidden” error page will appear in the event that the login details the visitor enters aren't right. Even a direct link to a file shall not work if any folder above it is password-protected.
