A password-protected directory or area is a folder which can be accessed when a username and a password are typed in, so no unauthorized people may observe its content. This function can be used for the primary folder of a given site or just for a specific subfolder in accordance with your requirements. As an illustration, if you are creating a new Internet site and you don't want people to see it prior to it being ready, you may want to prohibit the access to it completely, while if you would like only some people to be able to access particular files, you could password-protect only a specific folder, while the rest of the Internet site could be seen by anyone. In either case, a “403 Forbidden” error page will appear in the event that the login details the visitor types in aren't correct. Even a direct link to a file won't work so long as any folder above it is password-protected.
