A password-protected directory or area is a folder which could be accessed only when a username and a password are entered, so no unauthorized people could observe its content. This function may be used for the primary folder of a particular website or exclusively for a specific subfolder based on the needs you have. For example, when you are creating a new Internet site and you don't want people to see it before it's completely ready, you have to prohibit the access to it altogether, while if you need only some individuals to be able to access certain files, you may password-protect only a specific folder, while the other parts of the website may be seen by everybody. Anyway, a “403 Forbidden” error page shall appear when the login details the visitor inputs are not accurate. Even a direct link to a file shall not work if any folder above it is password-protected.
