A password-protected directory or area is a folder which may be accessed only if a username and a password are typed in, so no unauthorized people could observe its content. This option may be used for the main folder of a specific Internet site or just for a particular subfolder in accordance with your requirements. For example, when you are building a new Internet site and you do not want people to see it before it is ready, you may want to limit the access to it entirely, and if you need only some individuals to be able to access certain files, you'll be able to password-protect only a specific folder, while the remaining portion of the site may be seen by anyone. Regardless, a “403 Forbidden” error page shall appear when the login details the visitor types in aren't right. Even a direct link to a file won't work so long as any folder above it is password-protected.
