A password-protected directory or area is a folder that could be accessed only if a username and a password are provided, so no unauthorized individuals may observe its content. This option can be used for the main folder of a particular site or just for a particular subfolder in accordance with the needs you have. For instance, when you are building a new Internet site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being 100% ready, you should prohibit the access to it altogether, whereas if you need only some people to be able to access specific files, you'll be able to password-protect only a particular folder, while the other parts of the site may be seen by anyone. In any case, a “403 Forbidden” error page shall appear when the login details the visitor enters aren't accurate. Even a direct link to a file shall not work as long as any folder above it is password-protected.
